My Students

I currently teach at a public charter school interested in starting a FIRST Lego League robotics team for our fourth through eighth graders. I have over 15 years of experience coaching FIRST robotics but this would be new for our school community. We are in need of a new robot for a successful competition season.

Hands-on learning is essential for development and STEM is where it is at!

These students will grow in STEM and presentation skills through the FLL program!

My Project

Students will work on a team to participate in First Lego League 2019 season. In their group of 10, students will be given a project challenge as well as a robotics table game challenge. They will work on core values of FLL focusing on teamwork and integration of science and social studies. They will present their research in a creative way to judges at our competition in November.

In addition to the project presentation there will be a table game component where students program a Lego Mindstorms EV3 robot to complete missions provided by the first Lego League.

It is sure to be a great enrichment activity!
