My students need blocks to practice for a robotics competition in Houston, TX.
We have constructed our robots. Now they need to practice. The blocks represent the boom used to help clean the Gulf after the oil spill.
Our school is an inner city public school.
We are a Title 1 funded school. This means that the majority of our students fall into an income bracket to qualify for free or reduced lunch. The students who are in the competition are in grades kindergarten through fifth.
The students have worked hard to construct robots for an international competition in Houston, Texas. We recreated the playing field that will be used in the competition. The playing field is a model of the Gulf and the oil spill last year. We have to use the robots to save the turtles and their eggs. The blocks are representing the boom that was used to help clean up the spill.
The students need to practice picking up the "boom" before the competition.
They have worked hard and have learned about the conservation of sea turtles and the importance of keeping not just the Gulf but the entire environment a clean and safe place.
