STEM Challenge: Ozobots

  • Program Goals
    • Drop-in program for all ages
    • Experiment with science concepts and materials
    • Build fine motor skills
    • Build STEM skills
    • Attendance: 20
Supplies
  • Educational set of Ozobots (provided by the consortium)
  • Markers (thicker is better)
  • White bulletin board paper to cover the tables
  • Rules to make straight lines
  • Additional coding sheets and games from Ozobot.com
How it works
My aide covered all the tables with paper and we set out Ozobots, markers, and coding sheets. Then the kids came in and played. My aide mostly hung out with them - she hadn't used them before and was interested and she's very patient, which is great because that's the main thing with Ozobots - you have to be patient and draw your lines carefully or you don't get results (not the ones you're looking for anyways).

Evaluation
  • 10-16-18
    • Attendance: 20
    • Notes: We had to watch the little kids - Ozobots are small enough to easily slip out in a little pocket (or get tasted!). Some kids tired of it quickly, others stayed for almost two hours working with them.
