Ms. Dewar Dituri from Clifton NJ is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a robot for our classroom that will help them with their activities.
My school district has over 15,000 students with large numbers of Hispanic, Middle Eastern, Asian, Filipino, and Polish students. There are 51 different languages spoken at home, and we are a suburban school district surrounded by urban school districts. We pride ourselves on offering many opportunities for our students, so they can grow academically, athletically, emotionally, and socially.
Our high school has 3,300 students and we offer 25 varsity sports and 3 varsity academic competition teams, including our FIRST Robotics Team, of which I am the lead mentor.
Part of the FIRST Mid-Atlantic District, we will be competing in FIRST Rise: Infinite Recharge. Our 5 ft, 120 lb. the robot has won numerous engineering awards and qualified for the FIRST Championship five times.
The National Center for Education Statistics (2016) attributed living in poverty during early childhood, in part, to education-related deficiencies, inadequacies with physical and cognitive development, and disparities regarding access to healthcare. These students are five times more likely to drop out and 13 times less likely to graduate high school on time. Over 50% of our students live in poverty, but adding positive school-based relationships greatly increases the desire to graduate and internal motivation.
We need a robot for our special needs applications in our STEM classrooms. With this control system, we will be able to allow our special needs students to control our robot and perform tasks with it. The controllers will allow the students to make the arm move up and down and there is a system in place where the students will be able to use voice control to have the arm move up and down or also just push a few large buttons.
It is so important that our robotics team works with all of the students in our school to give them a STEM experience which is vital in this 21st-century learning environment.
Thank you so much for supporting our classrooms.
