How Does it do That? Bots of Learning!

Help me give my students a future career enhancing opportunity where they can do more than just code games on the screen.

My Students

The school district I teach in strives to be a "world class" district. through relationships, rigor and relevance daily. We challenge our students in every way possible. Technology is most certainly relevant to our students' daily lives now and will be even more so in the future.

More than a third of my 56 fifth-graders come from low-income households, and I teach many military children; these students face a greater number of challenges both in and out of the classroom.

Despite the many challenges they face, I strive to engage and motivate all my students so they will be college, career and life ready.

My Project

By helping us purchase a robot, we can bring coding to life and possibly encourage some future programmers. We'd like to bring a bot into class to allow the students to actually write code that does something so they can see that it's not just pulling blocks and making something on the screen do something, but they can actually apply it to making something work in real life ... just like the manufacturers at Volvo and Boeing and Bosch and the other businesses in this area do for much of their manufacturing.

We would like to learn to program Bots using the new iPads and Streams we were given this year and we will blend coding of the bots with our curriculum in math, science and social studies.
