My Students

As a STEM teacher in a Title 1 school, my students are faced with a multitude of challenges both in and out of the classroom. Unfortunately, the struggle with basic needs like shelter, food, and clothing has placed a heavy burden on the minds of a majority of the students. However, they all have big dreams of success, of going to college and becoming productive citizens.

Although my younger students have a strong desire to learn and are very hard working, a deficit they possess as a whole group is the background experiences with simple robotics and CODE.

It is my wish to provide my students with opportunities that will allow them the ability to stretch their thinking and challenge their problem solving skills.

My Project

I am requesting 2 Wonder Worshop Dash Robots to assist my younger STEM students with simple CODE experiences and robotics. These robots will allow students to work in small groups and share creative experiences. They will have opportunities to create, design, and evaluate as they go.

My young students will spend time using our classroom technology to create individualized CODE that will allow them to control the movement and sounds of the Wonder Workshop Dash Robots.

These experiences will provide students with the opportunity to problem solve and to figure things out with a hands-on approach. I hope to continue making memorable memories for my students!
