Lego Mindstorms: Robot Olympics
My students need 4 Lego Mindstorms kits so they can build and program their own robots for an in-class competition!
Our small K-8 school is located right outside Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Students spend a lot of time learning about the island's unique geology and biology through place-based, project-based learning.
'Ohana is the Hawaiian word for family, and the perfect way to describe the students in our school.
There is only one class per grade level, and some of the students are classmates together for 8 years!
We are a Title 1 school. Some of our students travel an hour each way to attend our school. Some students don't have internet access at home; some don't have running water! Despite any hardships, our students are hard working and curious about the world around them!
My fifth grade students love robots. They love Legos even more! Lego Mindstorms provides hands-on, real-world robotics experiences in kid-friendly packaging! It would be the most exciting science project of the year.
Students will work in teams to design, build, and program their own robot for a class competition we are calling Robot Olympics.
Which robot can carry the most weight? Which robot can shoot the ball the farthest? There will be different categories for the robot competition.
4 kits will give every student a chance to work on the robot. Students will read schematics, learn basic programming, and troubleshoot their work! It will be a great way to learn the scientific process!
