What kinds of robotics projects are you most interested in working on?

I am going to work with my students to create programmable robots using Arduino and move on from there. We are now learning about how Arduino works.

How would you describe your experience with robots?

I am just beginning, having created a programmable robot from CDs, Velcro, and Arduino. Most of my experience in technology revolves around Linux, Apple, and Windows operating systems. I am trilingual.

What do you hope to gain from this Meet-up group?

I hope to gain experience and knowledge. I would like suggestions on how to move ahead and develop my teaching goals in technology. I also have an Ubuntu LTSP lab in my classroom where we do most of our work. Any suggestions on how to best utilize this in robotics would be welcome.

Introduction

I am a fifth grade teacher at Hawaiian Elementary School. I started a club where we use Arduino to explore electronics and coding. We will eventually build robots. Introducing technology to students without opportunity in low-income areas is my goal.
