Programming Robotics Made Easy

Help me give my students the programming experience. This will open their eyes to what they can accomplish if given a chance.

My Students

Our students in eighth grade mathematics are a handful I also teach CTE Principles of Information Technology. They are curious, challenging, motivated and eager to learn. They crave to be stimulated and engaged almost every second of class. They are also easily distracted, so I have to focus on keeping them engaged constantly.

These students have been through overwhelming experiences during and since Hurricane Harvey.

Considering that we started school one month late and our students came back to school to start the year eager to learn was wonderful to see. These students have gone through tremendous life stories that most adults would cringe to even think about. They have been an inspiration to me and to our whole school.

My Project

This project will give my students the chance to build robots. They need to learn that there is more to life than what is available locally. With this experience, students will be working in teams to experience building a robot step by step and seeing how they can program them so easily. These kits will let students build without having to soldering the pieces together. This is a great intro kit them my students can build together. They will be able to build team working skills, communication and analytical skills. My student from this small town have never seen this type of technology before. This is a great introduction to robotics.
