Fifth graders at Springville School want to learn more about the world around them and how they can make a positive impact on our planet.  They will study the real world problem of plastic pollution in our oceans.  Working in collaborative groups, they will use empathy centered design thinking to create a robot to solve this problem.  Using LEGO WeDo robotics kits, they will build a prototype of their design. The next step is to program their robot to do the work they've designed it to do.  Lastly, they will test, refine, and present their solutions to one of our world's significant problems.


With these funds, we will purchase:

8 LEGO WeDo 2.0 kits, each of which costs $189.95 for a total of $1519.60.

Thank you for any help you can provide!
