My Students

My students are curious, creative, and love learning. They are very sweet, passionate about learning, and happy to support each other regardless of subject area. Students are constantly in motion, whether working together in small groups featuring their learning by developing and presenting math posters, individually rendering 3D objects in TinkerCAD, or playing baseball with the entire class. Students range in age from 10 to 12; represent more than eleven different ethnicities; speak more than fifteen home languages; and attend our public, suburban school in a multiple-subject self-contained classroom.

My Project

My students, both in class and in my after-school programs, have explored basic coding with Scratch and other block coding platforms and had experience with line-following robots, ozobots, and Spheros, but LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 offers students new challenging hands-on, minds-on, and cross-curricular STEM explorations.

LEGO® MINDSTORMS kits fully engage students by providing complete resources to design, construct, and program their creations while helping them develop the essential 21st century 4Cs - critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication.

Each EV3 set provides a structured guide with 48 tutorials, instructional videos, and standards-aligned instruction sequences to help students master not only basic coding but develop advanced coding/programming skills. Using Mac, Chromebook or IOS, Lego MINDSTORMS® EV3 apps teach students to "program robots and other creations, document and track progress using the documentation tools, create and edit content, ... [and] log real-time data and calculate data sets." (source: education.lego.com)

My students will be able to learn logic and critical thinking and computational thinking skills while constructing and programming LEGO robots to complete various tasks. While I have yet to have a team participate in First LEGO League (FLL), I have judged robotic competitions. I would love to empower my student to participate in FLL. Having come from the high-Tech world, I am familiar with several programming languages and have used many different kinds of robots, but LEGO Mindstorms is new to me; I’m excited to learn alongside my young engineers!
