When I received the robots, I was able to use it as a reward for the STEAM Reading Challenge. I volunteered to use the Robots with all 25 students being able to participate. The challenge was Robot Wars, where they had to build a robot that will push out the other opponent from the ring. The students had to collaborate and work in teams of two to build a robot that will also not fall apart. They needed to strategize on how to engineer a robot that will guide their opponents out of the arena (this one program is called Sumo Wrestle). The students learned how to balance, build, and engineer around the robot’s sensors. The Third Graders had so much fun and it was a great way to introduce the robots to the students. I usually extend the robot project during the fourth quarter by using the Scientific Method and questioning the robots’ program, there were some glitches that the students were able to find. This is a hands-on project and the students learn so much about technology and how it is used in our new technology world. Even though this is my third year using this program, every year I learn something new, but the biggest reward is that the students learn to question and be patient.
