Our objective for writing this grant is to obtain a variety of super engaging devices which will allow our students practice with coding, programming, and other hands-on learning experiences. By introducing these various robotics into our classrooms, our students will be able to work in small cooperative groups during STEM and/or Genius Hour time and improve on 21st century skills, such as innovation and perseverance in solving problems. The items that we chose for this grant will provide students with unlimited learning opportunities. Additionally, increasing Student Engagement is an area of focus and interest in our building's School Improvement plan. The robotics requested in this project will allow our students to actively engage in the STEM process, thus increasing Student Engagement while allowing our students practice and enrichment, as well as, the freedom to cultivate their love of learning.
