My Students

The After School Robotics class is made up of fourth and fifth graders. 65% of our students are in poverty, yet they come to school each day and do their best. The Robotics class consists of poverty, high trauma, emotionally and behavior disabled students and higher level learning students. The Robotics class engages this diverse group of students, teaches them how to work with others and gives some of the students a safe place to be after school.

Robotics encourages the student to lean on each others' different talents while collaborating to complete a project, be it building a rollercoaster out of K'NEX, programing a robot or coding a game.

At the end of the six week After School Robotics Class, these students are sad, but they are eager to sign up for the next Robotics Class in three weeks.

My Project

The 2019/2020 school year our school looked at our After School Program differently. Instead of doing intervention, we decided to enrich students. We offer enrichment to students of ALL academic levels. The Robotics Program is one of many classes offered. Being the first year of the program, we did not have our own robotics tools. We borrowed from the middle school, other teachers and the school library for building and robotic types of tools. Some of the kits had missing pieces and some of the tools were geared towards younger students. This donation of robotic tools would add so much to our program.

The common interest of robotics took this diverse group to a new level of learning.

Robotics encouraged the student to lean on each others' different talents while collaborating to complete a project, be it building a rollercoaster out of K'NEX, programing a robot or coding a game. Having complete kits at the level of our students, will take this group to a whole new level.
