The students at this school, a Title I school in an urban area, come from a variety of backgrounds. We are a magnet elementary school with a new theme of play and ingenuity, and with that comes an increase in the number of ways in which students are able to explore, create, and take risks in their learning.
The mission of our school is to foster learning experiences which allow students to develop into creative, resourceful and inventive thinkers who learn through play each day!
Thanks to currently taught elective classes, including Coding and Lego Robotics, the demand for additional robotics courses has grown, and with it, the knowledge base that students come with. No longer are they interested just in learning the basics of operating robots such as Dash and Dot! They are now able to extend their learning to projects which apply their fundamental understandings, and with that comes the need for additional resources.
The Wonder Challenge cards and launcher for Dash will allow new projects that challenge students to apply their understanding.
The Sphero robot will provide an additional resource that encourages exploration in a different way, as will the Puzzlets pack.
