"Tell me, and I'll forget. Show me, and I may remember. Involve me, and I'll understand." Every student has their own way of learning new material, but nearly all students benefit from being actively engaged in lesson-based kinetic activities. As a Science teacher, I include hands-on activities for as many lessons as possible. Since the majority of the materials comes out-of-pocket, however, it can be hard to cover every lesson with extra activities.
My students have a insatiable thirst for knowledge that goes beyond our district's expectations of what is necessary to pass on to the next grade level.
Because of this, I have made it my top priority to incorporate a STEM and Robotics club that will develop LEADERS of tomorrow. My students already have the desire to be highly successful as adults. They just need the tools to get them there. You can help them with that.
Our fledgling STEM members are branching into the world of Robotics and have their sights set on attending and WINNING a robotics competition in January 2020. Currently we have very old and barely functioning robots to practice with , but having our very own Lego, competition-ready Mindstorms will give them the same opportunities that the better-funded schools have the luxury of having.
These students have what it takes to go above their own expectations.
We simply need the tools to help them get there.
Please help them get the equipment they will need in order to participate. Please show them that there are people out there who want to see them not only succeed, but WIN!
