My students need these Wiggle Bots for their STEM centers. We are eager to diversify our STEM challenges. Wiggle Bots are mini robots that can be constructed into paddle boats, fans, motorized puppets, and more!
Our students come from diverse cultural and economic backgrounds. All of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. We have a weekend backpack program and many students speak Spanish as their first language.
Picture a 5th grader saying this in an excited tone:
"Can we do more of this?" By "this" she meant STEM projects.
You can't help but love 5th grade; they are still kids yet they are on the brink of young adulthood.
This is our classroom.
We enjoy learning through creative yet meaningful experiences...
Experiences that develop social skills.
Experiences that create life-long learners.
Experiences that motivate.
Every week our students work in groups for 30 minutes to complete a STEM project! Help us continue our quest in the engineering and design process.
Wiggle Bots expose our students to the engineering and design process. Once a week students work in a group of 4-6 for 30 minutes on their Wiggle Bot. They have one week of exploration, the following week they begin their designs, and week three is testing and evaluating. Having 10 wiggle bots allots for 2 students per group for two classrooms. Our hope is to have a " Battle of the Bots" where the bots face off!
Students have to assess and evaluate their creations, which encourages higher level thinking!
Furthermore, research shows that “student motivation and quality of learning increase when they collaborate*.
These bots are an investment for the rest of the school year and will be rotated into our weekly STEM stations. In addition, we will use the bots for our early finishers and enrichment in the classroom.
Thanks for considering to fund our project.
