In the 2011-12 school year, Technically Learning partnered with 9 schools:
- Seattle Public Schools:
- Martin Luther King Elementary School
- Denny Middle School
- Hamilton Middle School (after-school)
- Highline School District
- North Hill Elementary
- Des Moines Elementary
- Madrona Elementary (after-school)
- Pacific Middle School
- Cascade Middle School
- Montessori Children’s House
We worked with a total of 20 teachers to engage 48 classrooms and 2 after- school programs for a total of over 1,300 students that learned about and were inspired by LEGO Robotics!
We loaned 104 LEGO NXT Robotics kits and 43 laptops with software to our partner schools. That’s close to $40,000 of equipment that we loaned to teachers, at no cost to them, to help get their students interested and engaged in the STEM fields.
Pre and post surveys were collected from 500 students who participated in robotics lessons with TL partner teachers. In an open-ended question, 35% of all surveyed students responded that robotics was their favorite part of science class, with answers ranging from “Making robots is fun” to “Building the robots and testing them to see what models would work” to “I really liked teamwork/problem solving skills using the robots.” Several students responded that “Programming” was their favorite part of science class!
