The students at our school come from very diverse backgrounds, while a large percentage of my school's students are from low-income backgrounds, so they may not be given the opportunity to join a team. They are all eager to learn, be a part of a team, and demonstrate any of their abilities.
Their backgrounds sometimes keep them from being able to participate in some things in our city; they deserve the chance to join in and be a part of something.
The use of the Lego Spike Prime will help the students use their own ideas to build, program, demonstrate, and share their new skills with other peers. It will also help students develop skills that they can use beyond their school years and into the real world. They will also learn gracious professionalism through the robotics program, which will teach them how to be part of a team and a community.
Some students want to be a part of a team but are not given the opportunity to join a team; Robotics gives students that chance.
Students will be able to feel accomplished in their projects and make life-long friends in the process.
