Biography

Project Title: Robotics Lead the Way
Learning Innovation Grant Recipient

The students in grades 3-6 at LBJ will be using robotics kits this year with the Project Lead the Way Curriculum. All students in grades 3-6 will be using these kits for different types of modules. Students will be using the PLTW Vex IQ Construction Kits and PLTW Vex IQ Robot Design Kits. Students will complete the modules throughout the year. Some of the modules require students to build simple machines, compound machines and robots, as well as program the robots. Students will build and test robots to collect blocks and move them across the floor. Students in grades 5-6 will stimulate removing hazardous materials from a disaster site with the robots they engineered. Students will also engineer robots and program them to work autonomously. The robots will be programmed to simulate taking supplies to patients in a hospital.
