My Students

Our Building Bobcats STEM Club is composed of elementary students from a rural school that would not have the opportunity to learn about science, technology, engineering, or math in a hands-on way with robots without this program. As a result of this club, the children are exposed to new careers that don't exist within our community. Some of the students have expressed an interest in becoming a scientist or engineer after becoming members and having hands-on experiences with the engineering process. Our club allows the children to explore opportunities in the engineering process and coding to prepare them for careers in STEM.

My Project

Our elementary STEM club is in need of supplies to help our children learn. We need batteries to help power our LEGO robots that the children are learning to code. We also need display boards for the children to decorate for expos we attend. We go through a lot of boards and a lot of batteries, and your donation will help cover the cost of these re-occurring expenses for our club.

Paxton, Florida is a rural community.

In 2016 we started a STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) club to participate in the LEGO program: LEGO FIRST LEAGUE JUNIOR.

The children spend the school year studying a topic and developing their engineering skills to face problems. Our first year we learned about a honey bee and the habitats a bee would live in.

The second year we focused on water. The children spent the year learning about water purity and conservation. They learned about various hand pumps and constructed a LEGO exhibit featuring Walton County (our county) which spans from the farm to city to beach. Their board showed water use and conservation in all three regions of their county.

This year, we are focusing on a space station. Our mission is to go to the moon, and make a space station to live at. The children have been studying all about the moon and space- and what humans would need to live there. Each year the children also code a bluetooth device to perform tasks.

The adults are there to guide, and the children come up with the whole project. At EXPO, the children set up their exhibit they have worked on all year, and are interviewed by judges. They have to be able to answer questions about their exhibits and their ideas.
