My Students

My students are very curious and love interactive activities. They're especially excited to build things. They work really well together and love to share stories. If I'm ever walking around, I can count on them to smile, say hi, and tell me about what's going on!

All of my students keep asking me, "When can we go into the Makery?

Well, that depends on what materials we can get, I tell them. We're trying to start a Maker Space at our school, and students are so excited to code and build. They smiled and cheered as we brainstormed ideas on what they want to make, and I can't wait to get the resources for that to happen!

My Project

Let's not leave out robotics for young learners. Students in grades 2-5 are curious about the world around them, and we often emphasize coding and robotics skills in middle and high school. But how can they prepare themselves for the skills without having exposure to it early on? Having materials for students to create scribble bot robots will help them integrate technical skills with their creativity in science and engineering, all while having fun!

It's important to me that students have choices in what they build and a place to express their ideas.

I'm looking for building materials for scribble bots, from the motors and batteries to wires. Having these raw materials means that students get to express their creativity of how they want their robots to become. Afterwards, they can design their own robots or reuse the motors for other projects. Our K-8 school will benefit from having these raw materials beyond the scribble bots. The possibilities are endless!
