My Students

Our district has amazing students that are ready to dive into coding robots and all it entails! They love hands-on work and trying new things as they are preparing for our new robotics club. Many have already done a bit of coding and have demonstrated game creating ability. Our students' interests and natural talents are as diverse as they come, but this kind of project will allow each student to shine as well as encourage one another!

These particular students bring out my passion for nurturing their enthusiasm.

They are engaged and excited to learn something new.

My Project

Our new robotics team will use these iPads to learn how to code robots. Students have been learning how to code using code.org and other programming languages. To give students a "real-world" experience with computer programming, we have purchased a few robots but need mobile devices to "operate" them. To make the robots do anything at all, they will use their iPads.

Students will program the robots on their iPads using the computer programming concepts and skills they have learned.

Students will obtain a deeper understanding of abstract concepts such as loops or conditionals when applied to real-world applications such as making a robot move. We are really excited to expand and extend our computer programming unit with robotics!
