My Students

Our students are incredibly excited to have the opportunity to learn about robots and coding. They are part of a special education community-based transition program where they learn about employment skills, technology, personal finance, health, social skills, and accessing the community.

We are located in a diverse, low-income public high school in San Francisco, California.

All of our students have either a mild/moderate or moderate/severe disability that includes ADHD, autism, intellectual disabilities, learning disabilities, and physical/speech disabilities. All of the students have a strong connection with technology in their lives.

My Project

The LEGO Mindstorms EV3 will enable our students of differing abilities to access previously less accessible concepts like block coding and robotics. The students will love "building and coding their fully-functional robot to walk, talk, and even play games or complete tasks! This educational STEM robot toy makes engineering fun for everyone who builds it." The EV3 allows students to build and code robots of different abilities and difficulty levels.

Another wonderful feature of the EV3 is that it has a large online community of people who have come up with alternative projects to complete in the classroom.

For the manufacturer: "LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 is built with 601 pieces and includes the intelligent EV3 Brick, 3 servo motors, plus color, touch and IR sensors. Connect with your smart device and download the free EV3 programmer app to control the robot!"
