Robotics makes the difficult metaphysical process of computer programming much more fun and interesting for students. Building and understanding the robot parts allows them to better understand the complex programming process. Robots teach the students through trial and error. Students have fun while learning basic science, technology, engineering and math.

Audience: Technology coordinators/facilitators, Principals/head teachers, Teachers

Empowered Learner
  • Students use technology to seek feedback that informs and improves their practice and to demonstrate their learning in a variety of ways.
  • Students understand the fundamental concepts of technology operations, demonstrate the ability to choose, use and troubleshoot current technologies and are able to transfer their knowledge to explore emerging technologies.

Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

The audience will help our middle school student presenters to build and program a robot. Our robotics class introduces basic programming skills to our students by building, exploring, and developing complex robots. Instead of programming lines on a computer screen, our students must build and understand the robots first.. Each program will move and control the robot right before their eyes. Our students and the audience will have fun going through the process of learning basic science, technology, engineering, and math skills in robotics class. Our project starts off with very basic robots and programs. The fourth graders will show the attendees how basic robots and their programs developed into much more complex robots completing much more detailed programs. Our young minds will show how they are preparing for a future world of STEM based jobs.

Robotics makes the difficult metaphysical process of computer programming much more fun and interesting for students. Building and understanding the robot parts allows them to better understand the complex programming process. Robots teach the students through trial and error.
Students have fun while learning basic science, technology, engineering, and math skills. Learning through the technology of robotics prepares them to do jobs that will be created in the future. Computer skills are the key to the future working force in the world. Robotics teaches students basic programming skills. We want to guide them to not only get a job in the future, but to use their computer skills to get a higher paying job.

Students have the ability to work with their hands to build a robot. Students need the interaction with the robotic parts to understand what they are programming them to do. Children spend way too much time touching screens and watching videos move. Robotics force them to use their hands to build something creatively. They must use their imagination to understand how to build the parts and then program the parts to move. We want our students to create an innovative robot. Not many subjects in school teach our students math, science, and computer programming skills while guiding them to be creative. think out side the box.

The future of the industry of computer programming and robotics is exploding all over the world. Our students have watched the land rovers on mars and the drone industry buzz before their eyes. We need the creative minds of our students to imagine a new future that will use the innovative world of computer programming and robotics. The new technology will be designed and created by the students of today. Robotics allows students to get interested in computer programming at a young age. Student interests at a young age transform into talents in computer programming that they will use the rest of their lives.
their potential.

We need our students to do so much more than standardized tests to learn math, science, and computer programming. Robotics develops their problem solving skills and forces them to be creative. Problem solving skills in robotics are a valuable life lesson that teaches our students perseverance, and determination. Working with robots helps our students prepare for real world situations.

So many of our young students spend too much of their day in front of a screen and lose the social interaction with their classmates and friends. We need to decrease screen time and bring our students into robotic teams that must interact together to build their robot. Robotics is available to a wide range of students with varying skills and developmental levels. Robotics allows them to solve problems as a team. The best teacher of a student is another student. These important social skills allows our students to work together.

I am the vice principal at Liceo del Valle Middle School. I have been a teacher for fifteen years in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. I enjoy teaching STEAM classes. We are focusing on science, technology, engineering, language arts, and math classes this school year. I have worked with all age groups in middle school. I hope to bring diversity to the ISTE Conference this school year. I thank you for your time.
