STEM Learning with Botley the Coding Robot!

Help me give my students Botley the Coding Robot and STEM storage, so they can experience hands on learning with coding and keep our classroom organized.

My Students

I teach Literacy Technology to over three hundred students in kindergarten through fifth grade, in an urban school. My students come from diverse backgrounds and the majority are low income. We are the largest charter school in New York State. Our motto is "Every Day is Career Day".

Career preparation begins at my school in kindergarten where students are exposed to different careers as well as the skills needed to enter the "world of work".

I see my students twice a week and we work on 21st century technology skills. The skills my students gain today will help them be successful tomorrow.

My Project

Coding is an essential skill for all students. Botley the Coding Robots are an engaging way to learn the basics of coding skills for our younger students! Students will create algorithms to move forward, turn left, turn right, reverse, detect object, avoid object, make a sound, loop, to repeat a step or sequence that will direct Botley the Coding Robot. Students will program Botley to cross the room, maneuver through mazes, and debug the code when the code isn't quite right!

Students will be introduced to writing code, and solving problems using code, and then apply it to Botley the Coding Robot to test their problem solving skills.

Botley Robots are a great way to get students excited about the world of coding and a perfect introduction to the topic that is right at their learning level.

Botley Robots will help our students learn those vital technology skills needed today, while developing teamwork and critical thinking skills as they work together with Botley! This will give the students a head start on the ever evolving world of technology.
