Robots Rule the School

Help me give my students the opportunity to work with Robots to build problem solving skills.

My Students

I work with a wonderful group of students who enjoy exploring the creative side of life. These students are hard workers who question everything. They want to know "Why". They have a continuous thirst for knowledge and learning new concepts. They are natural born leaders!

Our classroom is built on the principal: "What we can learn through our mistakes?" Most of my students do not like to experience failure, they are afraid of getting something wrong.

My class has a purpose to help them with failure and teach them that great things come through failure.

My Project

Engineering is a growing, important part of education. My project will allow students the opportunity to learn about robotics and engineering. Sparking interest in STEM not only helps advance our students, but it also allows the opportunity to try new things that they didn't know they were good at or interested in.

The Robots requested will allow for my students to have a hands-on approach to learning.

Students will learn to experience failure and success through the engineering process which will in turn provide them with useful life skills.
