I am passionate about robotics for several reasons. Bots are terrific ways to get students to think of problem-solving in a way that also opens the doors to design, innovation, math and engineering.
I am the robotics coach at my school. My team competes at the FIRST Lego League with support from ASU, Intel, Scottsdale Community College, Solavore, and the IT departments of Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community.
At my Computer and Technology Lab, we teach students to research, build, collaborate and compete – the spirit of ‘coopertition’ in FLL-speak. We team up with schools for inter-school events, invite guest speakers and visit tech companies for field trips.
