I teach at a Title I school in Dallas, Texas. Most of our students come from low-income and minority families and receive free breakfast and lunch.
Despite the many challenges they face, our students come to school eager to learn and do their best every day and teachers work very hard to provide meaningful learning experiences.
One of my goals as a teacher is to inspire my students to reach their full potential and motivate them to pursue careers in science and engineering.
Fifth-grade students from low-income and minority families, from our elementary school, will have the opportunity to design, program and build VEX IQ robots, and learn at the same time about programming and engineering. Coding and robotics have become a core skill of the 21st Century.
Teaching students robotics and programming will increase their ability to be creative and innovative thinkers and will prepare them for the jobs of the future.
By using hands-on robotics, students will gain a better understanding of how technology works in real-world applications. These robots will help the students to develop their creativity by designing and building robots based on their interest and imagination.
