My students need a LEGO Mindstorm EV3 to help them develop their creative, critical, and computational thinking skills, as well as cultivate their abilities to work cooperatively while solving a challenge.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I am the teacher at a suburban elementary school, and I serve students in fourth grade. My school is a Title I school serving students in a high poverty area. My students come to me with curious minds that are not always challenged at home. Many of the students do not have internet and other learning materials in the home to help challenge them.
It is my desire to give them every opportunity available to challenge their minds.
My students are eager to learn and explore. I want my students to have the materials needed to bring science to life and help them find their passion in learning.
My students will love working with the Lego Mindstorm EV3 kit to help learn programming. Our school established STEM Club in January that serves fourth and fifth grade students in an after-school setting. This Lego Mindstorm kit would allow me to increase the number of students that are able to participate in the club.
Students are always engaged when learning with LEGO!
By using the Mindstorm kit, students can work with block coding and Java to increase their knowledge of coding. We know that there are many careers that use coding and there is a shortage of students leaving school that want to enter these fields. We are working hard to promote all STEM areas and build interest in our students!
