The best part of robotics is getting something to work using the efforts of many different people and skills. - NASA Robotics Engineer Linda Kobayashi
My school is located in the community of South Central Los Angeles.
We are the home of the Lions where we always say, "Never, Never Give Up." I have 31 wonderful students that come to school ready to work and do their best. Our class logo is "Dedication - Hard Work." They come with a very diverse range of home structures: nuclear, single parent, foster and migrant, to name a few. My students love to be at school and enjoy learning, especially when the activities involve STEM. Many of them are already planning to become engineers, scientists, mathematicians, etc.
According to a new study by Latitude, an international research consultancy, robots can promote new learning and creativity possibilities in children and can offer new opportunities for technologists and educators to tackle common difficulties that kids come across during their learning process. I want this robot to promote creative risk-taking and self-direction and it can improve my students experiences with technology. They will build the robot after school. The students will use critical thinking to solve any problems they will encounter. Building a robot can be challenging but fun at the same time. They will have so much fun learning during their robotics time.
The hardest part of building robots is finding out something didn't work the way you expected.
When that happens, we usually have to go back to the drawing board and come up with some other creative way to do what we want. - NASA Robotics Engineer Linda Kobayashi. I want my student to find creative ways to solve problems when something doesn't work the way they want to. I need your help for this to be accomplish.
