Falvey Linen & Uniform Supply Grant: Design Build and Code Your Robot
- School Year: 2016-2017
- Applicants: Dawn Anstett, Lead Teacher
- School: Bristow Middle School
- Subjects: Math, Science, Technology
7th grade students at Bristow Middle School who participate in Robotics programs learn to design, build, and code their robots, developing STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills in a hands-on project based learning environment. The Robotics program consists of units of study that takes students from planning, designing and building their robot, to using the sensors and electronics provided in the kit to enable their robot to sense distances away from objects and avoid them when programing it to operate autonomously. Standards of Technical Literacy this project addresses: STL 9 Engineering Design. STL 10 The role of troubleshooting, research and development, invention and innovation and experimentation in problem solving. STL 11 Apply the design process.
