Problem Solving Through Coding and Play

My students need Bee-Bot Programmable Robots to help develop problem solving skills and to help introduce the world of coding.

My Students

I teach twenty-five students from diverse backgrounds in a small coastal town. Each day my students come to school with an excitement and eagerness for learning. Their curiosity fuels questions about what we are learning in class, what they observe in our environment, how things work, and how their prior experiences engage with the connections they make at school.

As a teacher, I want to provide my students with experiences to help make that curiosity and eagerness for learning thrive.

My Project

I am always seeking ways to improve the effectiveness of my class and create more meaningful student-centered activities. Through various opportunities for problem solving with real world situations or challenges, my students are more engaged, they communicate and collaborate more, and they internalize their learning on a much deeper level.

I am asking for the Bee-Bot Programmable Robots to offer them new opportunities for learning and problem solving.

In group settings, my students will need to work together to program the robots on a certain course, count and sequence the steps, trouble shoot any mistakes, correct their mistakes, and reach their final goal. These robots can offer my students a great introduction to the world of coding because they will get the idea of the series of steps needed to make the robot function and they will be able to physically measure, plan, and count out those steps. It would be a perfect stepping stone to our more sophisticated and complicated coding apps. The best part is, while the students are learning these important problem solving skills, they will feel like it is play.
