Help me give my students the opportunity to use their imagination using Legos We Do by creating robots and learning how to code.
Our school is nestled in a rural area of Santa Rosa County Alabama. We like to call our little neck of the woods, "The Best Kept Secret in Santa Rosa County". We are a Title I school and many of our children come from poverty and they struggle each day just to have their basic needs met. Our school creates a safe environment that allows each child to explore and create while learning.
My students are creative, thoughtful, and they are full of questions!
They love hands-on projects that allow them to use their imagination while problem-solving. This type of learning allows them to think outside the box to find their own solutions. They come to school each day ready to learn. They are truly are an inspiration to me! They give me hope for our future!
An area of focus that our school has decided to pursue is to incorporate STEAM into our curriculum. We recognize the value that an education rich in science, technology, engineering, art, and math provides our students and would like to keep expanding the number of opportunities our students receive in these areas. We feel a natural next step to enhance our curriculum is to include LEGO kits, which will expose students to STEAM concepts and complement our existing curriculum.
We plan to buy LEGO kits to share among two grade levels to discover if we can expand LEGO offerings into our current curriculum at more grade levels.
We believe these kits will allow our students to learn to work collaboratively to solve problems. We currently have a robotics team as an enrichment opportunity for some students but would like LEGO education kits to be part of our in-school curriculum in science and math for the younger students.
Thank you for your consideration of this grant. I look forward to implementing new and creative ideas for my students to be successful in the future.
