With my ARI Innovation Grant, I purchased Cubelets to teach the problem solving skills necessary for robot building and using technology. I have a group of 9th grade students who are “at risk” of not being successful in the academic aspects of high school. These students do not see school as an area where they have experienced success, so I used the Cubelets to aid in building their confidence and inspire them to become independent learners. The students built robots and had a competition where the robots competed in a race with the students designing the robot, evaluating, and making adjustments to their design.
