SVE Robotics Club

My students need the opportunity to be creative and innovative thinkers by learning how to code and problem solve through robotics.

My Students

The students at my school are very special to me. I work at a Title 1 school in Texas. Our school demographics consist of mostly Hispanic students and families. I really enjoy working at this campus because of the relationships I have built with the families. I love working with these kids and love to see them grow.

Our students have such a desire to learn and grow, but unfortunately they don't have the same academic opportunities as more privileged schools have.

I love to provide as many opportunities as possible, such as field trips to places they would never visit otherwise. I really enjoyed seeing and hearing the joy after our club meetings. Some even said it was so much fun and they couldn’t wait to come back, which I find incredibly rewarding.

I started our first robotics club at our school last year and had an amazing experience. I also had an amazing group of teachers join and make this club possible. I’m looking forward to adding additional technology tools to our collection and make this year even better!

My Project

The Robots purchased for our club will be used in a small group setting so students can have the opportunity to practice coding, building, and controlling the robots. My request includes: Lego Education Robot - students build and code the commands using the app; Wonder Cue - students code the robot to move, talk, or change colors; Sphero - students code it to move using block code or drawings; Osmo Monster - students draw an image and see it come to life on the app, and the markers are used to draw coding for Ozobots.

Students are more willing to engage in learning activities that are fun and engaging, and robotics is extremely fun!

By allowing our kids access to robotics, we are giving them access to creative thinking, building connections, and processing skills while "playing" in fun activities. There is a considerable amount of evidence and several articles that support how well students respond in subjects involving programming of robots. Regular programming can be too abstract, but having to control a physical robot and seeing what goes wrong or right, students learn what robots can and can’t do. Robotics also help address the growing demand for teaching science and technology in school. Students learning robotics can also decide if this is something they want to pursue in the future. Robotics is also suitable for all children.
