Project Goal

Purchase four (4) VEX IQ Super kits for students to use in class and after school STEM club. Each kit will cost $430.00. Four (4) kits will cost $1,720.00 

 

How Project Benefits Students

I have 5 classes where students are exposed to coding and Computer Science. From these classes, 40 students are involved in an after-school STEM Robotic club. Currently, students are practicing their coding on a robotic tutorial; however, the club does not have any robots available to apply their actual learned knowledge. These robots would provide students with the ability to understand how computer coding is used in the world of mechanics and engineering. 

 

Expected Outcome(s)

Students will form groups of three and work as a team to build and program their robot to achieve an objective. Lesson materials are available from the manufacturer to assist in the learning process. These robots can be used in class to reinforce student coding skills. Students who sign up for the optional STEM Robotic club will be provided additional instructional activities after-school and will be offered the opportunity to compete at middle school robotic competitions through robotevents.com. 

 

Detailed Cost Summary

Each Vex Superkit will cost $430.00. Four kits will cost $1720.00.

Thank you.
