My Students

My students come from different socioeconomic backgrounds with more than 80% receiving free lunch and reduced lunch. They are very diverse in so many ways such as the language they speak. Most of them speak Spanish, but some speaks Tagalog, Hindi, Panjabi, Mandarin, and Arabic. As a teacher in the 21st century, I envision my classroom to meet students' need by integrating STEM in my lessons to better understand Math.

I am particularly looking at VEX IQ classroom Bundle Robotics to connect students' learning in class and the demand of the world we live in.

In addition to this, it helps them stay focused, connected, and engaged with the lessons in the class to increase their learnings.

My Project

I've seen classrooms with students learning VEX IQ Robotics as well as my classroom. I am so delighted to see smiles, excitement, and curiosity in the faces of my students. I felt that robotics just may be the most perfect instructional approach for middle school students now a days.

The world needs more innovators, creators, and thinkers.

We need another 12 kits of the VEX IQ Robotics to maximize the time spent in my classroom. With my current number of kits in the classroom, students are taking turns to use the constructed Robots since they are grouped with 3-4 students in each. In this situation, time is wasted as they are waiting for their time to program their codes in the Robot.

It offers classroom activities that teach high-value STEM content as well as opportunities to powerfully address Math Common Core Standards.

Hands-on, project based lessons teach the students in a uniquely engaging way to meet the level of students' abilities. Robotics is also a highly effective way to foster essential work skills like collaboration, problem solving and project management. It does all this while keeping kids so motivated and engaged that getting them to go to their next class would be a challenge - such a very good problem to solve.
