Lego Robots Take Over a STEM Charter School

Help me give my students the opportunity to create Lego robotic projects which allow them to learn mechanical and electrical design, to write software to control sophisticated robots, and to compete with other students from around the world.

My Students

My students are inquisitive, and come from a variety of backgrounds. My school provides STEM opportunities for the students, and many of them thrive in the STEM environment. We have been astounded by the reaction of students to the STEM curriculum, particularly when we provide opportunities for children to engage in creative activities like science projects, robotics, environmental awareness and engagement.

Last year, for example, our students participated in the RoboGames, an event which allows students to compete in robotics games against other students from elementary, high school, and college students from around the world.

My Project

E. V. C. STEM Charter School strives to provide students the opportunity to design and implement working, autonomous robots. Building these projects requires students to learn principles of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, and develop software to make the robots work.

The robots perform functions like moving about, sensing objects, avoiding objects, battling other robots, following objects or people, and performing intricate maneuvers to accomplish tasks.

In 2018, students were able to compete in the RoboGames nearby Silicon Valley event which allowed students to compete in autonomous robot competitions against students from around the world.

The E.V. C. Charter School program uses paid teachers, and volunteer engineering teachers and parents in an after-school program, to teach kids through hands-on design and construction of functional, working robots.

The school tries to provide a robot kit for every 2 students, who work in pairs so that all students have an opportunity to build and design the robots. The demand for spots in the classes and after-school club has meant that we don't have enough robotic kits to meet the demand. We would like to buy 2 more robotics kits to provide 4 more students the opportunity to participate.
