My Students

Our school district (Worthington City Schools outside of Columbus, Ohio) is perceived as being wealthy, but the reality is that our community's socioeconomic situation has changed throughout the years and our state funding has been reduced causing our school system to rely more on the local taxpayers and fundraisers, grants to offset costs. For example, our club requires a club fee, which some families have trouble paying and we are also in need of the latest robotic technology. Each season the team's goal is to compete in the First Lego League, VEX IQ, and National Robotics Competition, which all require registration and sometimes kit fees totaling at least $1,000. Our robotics club is seeking funds to go to the National Robotics Competition in April and begin collecting money to pay for registration to the First Lego League competition and/or VEX IQ competition in Fall 2019.

What I love about my Robotic's club students is the sense of togetherness and "can-do" spirit they exhibit in the club and at competitions.

They may not always succeed as much as they had wished, but they also have a lot of fun and learn about robotics along the way.

My Project

Going to the First Lego League Competition, the VEX IQ competition and The National Robotics Competition are a lot of fun for the kids; they have a lot of freedom throughout the day moving to different venues at the locations such as The Ohio State University, various schools and the Marion County fairgrounds. In addition, they really do get to bond as a team, which is cool to see the transformation.

Going to the First Lego League Competition, the VEX IQ competition and The National Robotics Competition in Marion, Ohio are all great experiences for the students because of the personal accountability, teamwork, and quick problems they have to solve with their robots during the competition.
