Ms. Aitken from Columbus OH is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need a Cozmo Robot for an engaging experience with coding and robotics. Cozmo will jumpstart our classroom Makerspace.
My students come from all over the city of Columbus, the largest urban, public school district in Ohio, to participate in a full-time gifted program. Because of this, they are a very diverse group of amazing children. We work toward maintaining a growth mindset and Habits of a Scholar, such as intellectual risk-taking, perseverance, and looking at topics through multiple perspectives.
These young, passionate gifted learners are innately curious, tech-savvy, and enjoy being able to learn in a variety of ways.
They yearn for the challenge, choices in the learning process, and the opportunity to work at their own individual paces. Because my students are problem solvers by nature, critical thinking skills and problem-solving are a big part of our learning environment. Opportunities for collaboration and hands-on learning provide my students with real-world skills.
Our Makerspace will incorporate science, technology, engineering, math- those important STEM skills- in order to give my students the opportunity to practice a growth mindset and utilize critical thinking skills. A Makerspace will be the perfect addition to our learning environment, and this Cozmo Robot will give our space the jumpstart it needs. Cozmo will help my students learn valuable coding skills in a fun, engaging, and creative way.
Cozmo is fun right out of the box, but that's just the beginning; Cozmo's abilities and skills will develop the more my students play with him and so will theirs.
He is a little bot with super-powered smarts. Cozmo doesn’t just move; he gets curious & explores. He doesn’t just learn; he plots & plans. He doesn’t just see you, he gets to know you. He's a supercomputer on treads. And, he's fun on a whole new level. By nurturing Cozmo and playing games with him, my students will develop responsibility and valuable technology skills.
Cozmo's big brain and even bigger personality are operated by real robotics technology. Cozmo's easy to use Code Lab will give my students unprecedented access to Cozmo’s core functionality. They will be able to simply drag and drop a few blocks and see Cozmo act out their creations. With Code Lab, there are no limits to what my students will be able to create through coding. All it will take is imagination, and my students have plenty of that. Creativity abounds in our classroom!
