Ms. Gurrola from El Monte CA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Rascally Robotics

My students need 4 LEGO WeDo 2.0 Core Sets to create STEM-related robotic projects that will allow them to engage in critical thinking.

  • $1,043 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

We are a small Title I school with a predominately Hispanic/Asian population. Many of our students are first generation Americans. Some come from single parent homes, while others come from large extended families. Some speak only English, while others are bilingual and even trilingual! They are an amazing group!

"Being Proactive," "Beginning with the End in Mind," and "Putting First Things First," are just a few of the principles our 400+ students in K-6 are practicing to develop their academic and leadership skills.

Along with our teachers, staff, and parents, I am so proud to see the curiosity, initiative, and perseverance our students are demonstrating as they tackle the 21st Century skills of communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking ACROSS the curriculum.

My Project

We are in our second year of using Google Classroom and having our own class set of Chromebooks. Our computers have become our third hand and have knocked down our classroom walls connecting us globally.

I have spent time watching my students completely enthralled with the act of coding.

They "productively struggle" and revise their thinking to accomplish their goals. I'd like to help my students put a 3D face (aka robot) on their projects. Being able to use the LEGO WeDo 2.0 Core Set to build and manipulate robots to carry out the tasks they have designed, will let them experience the real-world application of their projects.
