Mr. Hoffman from San Jose CA is requesting educational kits & games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Launching a LEGO Robotics STEM Course

Help me give my students a hands-on, cross-curricular STEM experience that engages students by providing the resources to design creations while help them develop essential 21st century skills such as creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration.

My Students

Our students long to be part of a caring and innovative community. This new Lego Robotics course will foster that community. I am continually inspired by the creativity and hope I see from the students in our school and I plan to use the materials and equipment to help students unleash their potential.

These materials will benefit the entire school by providing interactive STEM materials and access to Lego Robotics.

Throughout the year these students work very hard and deserve the equipment and basic supplies to achieve their highest potential.

My Project

This first step will allow students to design and build programmable robots using high quality motors, sensors, gears, wheels, axles, and other technical components. By using hands-on robotics, students will gain a better understanding of how technology works in real world applications.

This STEM experience challenges students to develop real-word skills of communication, coding, and collaboration while exposing them to the possibilities of their future.

Students will understand and interpret two-dimensional drawings to create three-dimensional models; build, test troubleshoot and revise designs to improve robot performance; gain practical, hands-on experience using mathematical concepts such as estimating and measuring distance, time and speed.
