Mr. T. from Woodville MS is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Let's Stop and Robo​t Through STEM

Help me give my students the Simple & Powered Machines Set by LEGO Education which will help them with the skills they need to identify & solve problems using Robotics in the classroom.

My Students

The individual students I teach are special because they are gifted and come​ from backgrounds that limit their exposure to learning. However, if given the proper tools for learning I truly believe that my students can become productive during their learning and can enhance their overall educational experiences within the classroom.

As an educator, I believe that all children can learn by any means necessary regardless if they are gifted or not.

My main goal and desire are to get these smart, bright, energetic, intellectual students funded and proceed on with making sure they are getting the knowledge that they deserve so that they may become the future leaders of tomorrow. I am hoping that donors choose my projects so that my students will benefit.

My Project

My students work with computers, but with the Robotics kit they will learn the process of coding and using technology through the STEM process. I plan to add the LEGO Simple & Powered Machines Sets, and other activities to my STEM Projects so that they can add movement and mechanical advantages to projects they have already practiced. This will help the students see how humans can come together with robotics to produce positive outcomes from finished products that students have produced.

Robotics and coding are just the first steps for students; I plan to use these resources to show them that the machines are nothing without the humans behind them using the process in order to produce a finished product.

This will work well with their creativity and innovative minds of using science and technology.

My students will look at projects that we have already learned about and then revisit them with engineers' eyes. They will look for ways to add on to the models and create more ways for humans to interact with the robots so that they can solve more advanced challenges. For example, adding a robot kit to our Engineering center in our classroom that rolls forward and detects an obstruction could show the students how to build a NASA Robot that moves obstacles out its own way (with a little help from​ its humans and their creative minds of thinking and solving things electronically.).
