My students need 12 Ozobots robots to begin to understand coding and robotics.
At our STEAM school, our recipe for success is to mix Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math with our everyday curricula. The finished project is a well rounded education for our students. These Ozobot Robots will allow me to incorporate computer programming, engineering, and science.
In Silicon Valley, my STEAM school serves a truly remarkable group of socioeconomically disadvantaged students who genuinely love to learn.
Despite some of the hardships my students have faced, my class shows up ready to learn every day! They are a very caring bunch and I would love for them to see that other people (some they don't even know) care about them, too!
Every Friday, my students work in small groups (their Engineering Teams) to build a project to meet a need. Students use various building sets, think Lego or K'Nex, to build a structure to support 7 textbooks, the tallest structure they can, etc. These 12 Ozobots would be another opportunity for students to figure out how materials work. For our engineering time, I give very little direction, and our goal is to focus on trial and error. Students would have to collaborate to figure out which color patterns make the robot change direction, speed up, and spin. One of the things I hope my class learns from the engineering stations is that it is okay to make mistakes, as long as you keep trying to find a solution.
Many of my students are from socioeconomically disadvantaged families.
Many families do not have much technology at home, so access to things like Internet or computers are limited. Jobs like computer programmer and software engineer are worlds away from my students. I hope that tools like the Ozobots will lessen the gap and inspire my students to pursue new careers down the road.Read More
