My students need WeDo 2.0 core sets to start several FIRST LEGO League Jr teams and several First LEGO League teams. My students are hoping to expand the interest in participating in FIRST Tech Challenge.
We are considered the alternative school for our district. My students have very diverse learning backgrounds and come to our school because it fits their needs.
Project-based learning is emphasized and many students use technology on a daily basis to access their classes.
Teachers here are very caring and understand the unique student body we have. We have a small student body, about 100, which allows for personal one-on-one instruction.
Our students have access to our local community college, which is right across the street. I enjoy working here as our students' main goal is to be the best they can be.
In 2017 my school started a FIRST Tech Challenge Robotics team. This first group of students had never before been involved in a robotics program or been presented with the opportunity. As part of our program, our students visited elementary schools and showcased their robot and talked about their experiences with younger children.
They emphasized the skills they learned and how they learned about teamwork.
They want to pass on these lessons to our younger students by using the FIRST programs to teach students about programming, engineering, and gracious professionalism. The LEGO WeDo robotics set will help students in grades K-3 learn programming, teamwork and presentation skills
This project will give my students the resources they need to fulfill their dream.
