Goal

To provide a real world application of 21st Century Learning Skills as well as the standards being taught in classrooms. Students will utilize robots to practice their problem solving, speaking and listening, as well as the reading, math and science standards that they will encounter in their classroom.  

 

What will be done with my students

Through robotic exploration, students will be taken through the cycle of Planning, Building, Testing and Iterating as they explore different robotic challenges. Students will have the opportunity to take on different roles including: Engineer (builder), Software Specialist (programmer), Information Specialist (gets the necessary information for the team to move forward) and Project Manager (keeps the group on task). Through these roles students will have the opportunity to work together as a team in order solve robotic challenges.  

 

Benefits to my students

The Rockin' Robots program will benefit Kindergarten through 5th grade through the Library Media Maker Space as well as through our Robotics Club that occurs before/after school as well as during lunch.

Students are expected to learn how to work in a group with different roles, to help solve coding and programming challenges. Through these challenges, students will be exposed to real world scenarios that reinforce the standards being taught in classrooms.  

 

Describe the Students

Mount Vernon has a very diverse group of learners including students with disabilities, gifted students and students who speak English as their second language. Our students come from low socio-economic areas and do not have access to robotic materials. 

 

Budget Narrative

The budget includes funds to pay for the robots and accessories that will be utilized within our Rockin' Robots Maker Space Program and Robotics Club. We will be using Spheros: Bolt, Mini and Ollie robots. Additionally, we will be utilizing Wonder Workshops Dash and Dot Robots. The accessories (ramps and covers) will be used to challenge thinking in regards to coding and making changes and new iterations of code through experimentation.
