Youngest and Brightest STEM Students learn Coding with No Screen!

My students need these Botley Coding Robots and Go Robot Activity sets to help them experience coding skills hands on. They can then apply these skills to more screen-digital resources.

My Students

STEM education is at the forefront of our students' world. Everywhere we look we see the fruits of the world of STEM. As a STEM Specials Teacher, one of my main jobs is to teach coding skills to all elementary students. Working with our youngest minds can be a challenge, but I have discovered that they have the most instinctive ability to code! Working sequentially, thinking of cause and effect, planning ahead, testing and revising... these are invaluable skills for our next generation of students. Starting their coding journey now leads them to a very bright future!

Having these hands-on interactive materials that don't require a 'screen' of any kind will encourage collaborative learning, problem solving, and will give me the ability to teach strong basic coding principles to our Young 5's (preschool) classes, Kindergarten classes, and 1st graders.

A total of 280 students in 2 elementary schools would be able to physically and visually understand coding skills and apply them to inquisitive STEM Challenges.

Please help our youngest and most curious students connect with the skills of the 21st century!

My Project

Our youngest STEM learners need hands-on materials to learn the abstract thinking skills to become successful future coders.

These hands on materials will give students concrete experiences to grow coding skills while they problem solve and learn collaboratively in a game-like way.

Sequential thinking, cause and effect, trial and error, revising thinking, collaborative learning, adaptability, determination... these 21st century skills may be the most difficult to teach directly. As educators, and especially as a STEM educator, our goal is to provide rich learning experiences and foster growth in a meaningful way.

Seeing coding robots in action will give our students a chance to think, plan, collaborate, take action, observe, and revise their thinking.
