It's Alive...Coding And Robotics Bring Legos To Life! 2.0

My students need LEGO Boost because teaching robotics and coding to young students will increase their ability to be creative and innovative thinkers and more productive members of society.

My Students

The students that I work with are very excited about learning and curious about the world around them (especially anything involving STEM). My students love educational technology and it is one of my passions as an educator. Based in Pleasantville, a small city in South Jersey, my public elementary school is a diverse community of learners. From many different cultural, socioeconomic, and language backgrounds, we share our many different experiences with each other. Our student population includes many high-needs learners and over 90% of our student population qualifies for free or reduced-price lunch due to the family's low socioeconomic status.

Most of my classes throughout the day are inclusion classes and it is great to see all of my students collaborating and having fun using technology together!

Despite the difficulties my students endure in and out of the classroom, they truly enjoy coming to school. It is great to see all of my students collaborating and having fun working together! The best way to do this is with technology and your help.

My Project

My students have been learning to code and wish to advance in the field of robotics and increase their knowledge of 21st Century Skills. Lego Boost provides different aspects of robotics that they could use to create different forms of robots and learn many different aspects of coding. The Lego Boost Robot kit combines coding and building with Lego bricks. It combines their love of building and creating with legos with the ability to bring their creation to life with code. Students can use their creativity to build and code different robots.

Lego really understands how young children learn and has designed the perfect interface for them, and using Lego Boost would be a great way for them to have fun and learn at the same time!

They will be able to use their iPad to work with two of their favorite things: Legos and Coding!
