“I see robotics as providing skills necessary for the future and it involves creativity, communication, collaboration, and critical thinking to solve problems based off designed curriculum. I want to give the students at this school the same opportunities as well as STEM skills that will promote their interest in Coding, Computer Science and Robotics, and their desire to learn more in the future.” Jackie Berg
This after school club would be available to all students at Wellington Elementary School. Students would learn to code using various LEGO Wedo kits, and learn how to incorporate the 4C's that are important in STEM work (Collaboration, Communication, Creativity, and Critical Thinking). Students will do hands on learning to help build various robotic machines, and will deploy their critical thinking skills and work with groups or partners to achieve their goal. These materials would also be open to teachers to utilize in their classrooms, if they wanted to do a robotics project as well.
Community members are welcome to volunteer and we will run this program up-to 3 times a year, as long as there are student who are still interested in learning. Will you help build our Robotics club?
