I teach in a suburban school and in a community where one knows everyone. My students are very enthusiastic and energetic when it comes to hands-on activities and other challenging activities. I was able to loan the EV3 core set and the EV3 Space challenge from the organization that aims to uplift Science education, used the materials with my students and I saw how they excelled in building their robots, programmed and coded their robots to do the Mrs challenge. There were no dull moments the whole time we did the activity and the challenge. They are challenged to do their best, especially in enhancing their processes skills such as critical skills, analytical skills, mathematical skills and most importantly promoting their leadership skills as they collaborate with their peers. Our students are critical thinkers, creative, have a strong sense of leadership, very open to challenges and they love to collaborate with their peers.
This project will enhance students' critical and analytical thinking, as well as their ability to program, code a robot. This will also improve their numeracy and literacy skills. This project will encourage independent thinking and develop their problem-solving skills via engagement with real-world applications. This project is considered a STEAM project that aims to expose students and to prepare them for more complex STEAM projects. My students will be using this set to perform the Mars challenge.
Students are telling me that they want more hands-on activities that will challenge them, instead of just doing worksheets.
And I know that this project will serve its purpose well!
