My students are simply amazing. Their thirst for knowledge and information is unmatched. There is nothing better than watching them come across a challenge and coming up with a solution!
Robotics is such an amazing way for students to learn!
They learn to identify a problem, research the problem, propose solutions and see what is successful. All while using teamwork, interpersonal skills and ingenuity.
Our third, fourth and fifth grade students are so excited that Robotics is being incorporated into the Unit Based Inquiry framework that forms the basis for an IB curriculum. And the older students are excited to see how the program will be able to expand.
The Lego materials donated will make a difference for my students by enabling them to participate in robotics practice twice a week. Students will build, program and find solutions to problems through trial and error, collaboration and managing emotions.
The donated Lego robotic supplies for the students practice will provide the necessary baseline of knowledge/skills for competitions.
Ultimately, students will demonstrate the learned skills in competitions with peers to problem solve, collaborate and find solutions to presented challenges.
The skills learned using Lego Robotics will prove invaluable in building leadership, social interactions, and dealing with both success and failure gracefully.
