My Students

We are a fourth grade class in a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) school. Our students come from various ethnic and economic backgrounds and include all sorts of different learning types and abilities.

We strive daily to push ourselves, our minds, and our imaginations to their limits!

Our resources are limited, but our students love to explore and understand the world around them, and they are eager to make the very most of themselves to blast ahead to success!

My Project

Last year, we were fortunate enough to get three Sphero coding robots and three Ozobot coding robots, but with just three of each, our groups are too large (eight or nine students in a group), and some students are not able to fully participate in our coding activities.

With one more Sphero and one more Ozobot, we will be able to have four groups when we do these activities.

That will reduce the number of students in each group, and each student will be able to more fully participate in the fun coding challenges we do with these educational robots!
