Lego Robotics Club!
For the past several weeks, #schoolofheroes kids have had the opportunity to learn and explore with LEGO Robotics kits! Not only has it been an exciting learning environment where kids can experience STEM Engineering concepts, they have also had a lot of fun doing it. The student pictured above is having a blast – little does he know he is expanding connections and dendrites in his brain every second he pieces those blocks together! Or take another student – “B” – who told me several days before that he was COUNTING THE DAYS until Lego club – and this is a student who has told parents and teachers he doesn’t like school, he has trouble making friends. It’s increased his knowldege, his confidence, and his love of learning. Doesn’t get any better than that. It’s why I love education. It’s why I come back to work every day even when it’s tough. Because experiences like LEGO Robotics or dance, or music or drama or gardening, photography, a great history or science project – you never know what is going to change a life. Can’t wait to see what’s next!
