Modular Robotics: Designing With Cubelets
Help me give my students Cubelets-modular robotics, that will make them successful in the future and explore the 4C's to the fullest.
Weston Elementary students are immersed in STEAM this year. Being a STEAM school means we focus on science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. We are changing our mindset on how we approach our lessons and curriculum as we focus on the 4c's-creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking.
Our students learn best when they are doing hands on activities using robots, coding, completing challenges and working with technology like MakeyMakeys.
You can see the excitement and wonder whenever we try new things in the library and in their classrooms. The robots we have used allow us to make the robots do different things. We would like the ability to give students the ability to think critically and be creative in creating their own robots by using modular robotics - Cubelets.
Our students need to keep up with their ever changing world. Using Cubelets in the library and in their classrooms will engage and challenge our students giving them the skills they need for the future. With Cubelets our students will have endless opportunities for learning and innovation. They will be creating their own robots using different components while solving problems. The Cubelets will give them permission to be creative and permission to make mistakes and go back and fix things t make them work better. It's inspiring to hear students working on a project say that they need to think like scientists maybe they will all think like scientists while using the Cublets.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
