My Students

Our school is made up of a diverse group of 5th and 6th grade students. We are considered a middle school but we try to keep many aspects of an elementary base. We realize that kids need to be involved with hands-on experiences with science, technology and math. In our building we have about 500 students from diverse backgrounds. Our building is considered a Title I school, which means most of our students are considered "at-risk". Many of my students receive backpack food on the weekend, and our school also runs a food/clothing pantry for our families. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.

My Project

Botley the coding robot will be able to teach my students how to code - the fun way! The students do not know they're learning because they think they are just having fun playing with Botley. Instead, they are learning to think logically in order to get Botley to do what they want him to.

Logical thought processes are something all children need to learn if they are going to make it in this changing world.

It will give them the ability to solve problems, with words, not violence. It also helps children realize they can problem solve without an adult telling them what to do.
