Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Students

My school is a struggling school. We are trying to do our best with a lack of resources to support our students in the way that they need. One out of every five students in our school lacks permanent housing and 25% have special needs. 84% of our students are at or below the federal poverty line! Those are the depressing statistics that only tell one side of their story.

Our students genuinely love everything about geek culture; they talk, live and breathe it.

Their eyes light up whenever I spend time talking about cool technology or scientific breakthroughs. Sadly, most of them have never been exposed to science in ways that spark their imagination.

My Project

We decided to start a STEM/Robotics club because we wanted to give our students the opportunity to explore science in a hands-on, engaging way appropriate for our ever-technologically-advancing world. When we asked our students what interests them in science and technology, they overwhelmingly declared: robots! Though we could spend day in and day out researching robots and their history, it would be far more rigorous to expose our students to not just robots they can interact with, but robots they can build and program themselves.

With an increasing demand for technology around the world, we aim to provide our students the foundations needed to compete and succeed in the future.

Building Robots is a mentally challenging and a stimulating activity that will allow the students to watch their hard work come to life. It develops critical thinking, problem solving, programming, technological literacy, and team-building skills. It is crucial that we establish this club to prepare our students to build a better and greater future.

By funding the Mindstorm EV3 core and Mbot robot, along with the Airblock drone, you will be helping shape the future of our kids. Each of these bots will engage the kids in ways they have never experience before.
