Robots Are Great Teachers Too!

Help me give my students the opportunity of exploring robots and their purpose in our society today. We plan on celebrating Hour of Code in the first week of December and the materials will help us.

My Students

The students at our elementary school are eager to learn. We are only lacking in the technology to make it happen. I know that the students will be entering into a technology world for their future careers and need to start preparing in elementary school to be ready for their futures.

We have a strong math team that helps encourages students to learn on Khan Academy.

They give up many recesses to stay in and help younger students learn math. The math team also runs our STEAM programs, Khan Academy programs and Hour of Code programs.

We are planning on expanding our robotics programs and want all students to have access to coding as well.

My Project

Please give my students the opportunity to learn about robots using an Anki Cozmo Robot and programming the robot. As teachers, we want to bring to our students the latest in technology and teach them how to use it. We will be using our robots during Hour of Code week in December. One day all fields of work will be using some form of robotics in their day to day tasks.

These different types of robots allow us to allow our students to prepare for the job markets they are going to enter into.

The Lego creator robot will introduce programming skills to our students in the lower grades. We will be using the Hasbro Star Wars: The Last Jedi Smart R2-D2 to teach students about graphing on a Cartesian plane. Fisca Remote Control Robot RC Fingerprinting Transform will be used by our art teacher to teach transformations. We need to give them every opportunity to succeed in their chosen field of study. Thank you for all your support in preparing our students for their futures.
