Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 125

This year we were able to go far beyond robotics kits in the classrooom.  Our students put ideas into action by inventing their own robots and design their own interactive coded projects.

 

We made musical instruments, drawing robots, 3d printed projects as part of an entrepreneurship project, and learned how to advocate for our ideas in how a STEAM class should include more ideation and less using STEM Kits.  We learned about simple machines by building rube godlberg machines and learned about energy forms by building windmills and balloon cars using craft materials.

 

We are so greateful for the support of our local community and know that we will use our supplies for years to come.

Original Grant Overview

Project Goal

Our goal is to build out a computer lab that is currently functioning as a Robotics Room into a MakerSpace with 3D printing, Electronic Soldering, Robotics Challenges, to include Engineering and Design Challenge in our school. 

 

How Project Benefits Students

We believe students the combination of engineering theory and hands on activities will allow our students to be innovative problem solvers of the future. They need the chance to build, design, and code in an attempt to solve real world problems. Sometimes students will FAIL, but they will learn that failure is just a step in the engineering design process of finding a workable solution. And then they will learn that success is much more just a good grade-it is solving a real problem with something that you create yourself!  

 

Expected Outcome(s)

- This space will help students in the CTE program meet the current standards through hands on projects. We already have a great foundation. We have a huge space, with TONS of storage closets, LEGO robotics, and computers. By bringing in a 3D printer, some consumable electronics and soldering stations-we can give our students the reality of becoming young engineers-NOW! They will learn 21st century skills through hands on projects. With the 3D printer, they will learn how to complete a rapid prototyping process, taking their designs from sketches to models in just a few days. The electronics stations will allow students to explore the basic elements that make up all of the electronics we use today. Finally, the robotics equipment will give students another tool to learn coding and how to take an idea on paper and turn it in to advanced robot behaviors through computer coding.
Detailed Cost Summary - If our project is funded in March, by May, each level of Robotics students will have completed an Engineering Design Challenge that includes soldering a circuit, coded a working robot using a new language, and designing a 3D printed object. from sketches to models in just a few days. The electronics stations will allow students to explore the basic elements that make up all of the electronics we use today.
