Robotics at Valley Settlement

$1,120 of $1,300 goal

Raised by 22 people in 1 month
I will be teaching Lego robotics to underserved kids at Valley Settlement House in West Orange. Valley Settlement is a non-profit after-school center in West Orange. Many students come here after school to finish homework and play games. However, many of the students in the community have no STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education which is crucial in this innovative era. I will teach a 5-week class at the house to teach the children Lego Robotics and get them involved in STEM. The class will be twice a week, taught by myself and other scouts and members of my robotics team. Over the course, students will be taught about robotics and be asked to complete several challenges. Overall, the students will learn how to build basic robots, how to program robots, how to use sensors, how to complete challenges and solve the problems, how to work as a team, and how to document their work. Lastly, there will be a final challenge where the students can showcase the skills they have learned.

The donations collected on this GoFundMe will be used to purchase robots and rent computers for the classes and the center. I will purchase 3 robots for around $350 each.

Hello All,

We have completed 4 weeks of classes so far. The students have learned more advanced programming as well as how to code and use all the Lego Robotic sensors. The students have been able to solve several challenges learning how to find solutions to problems and how to work together as a team.

On Monday, I will be having a showcase where the students will show the skills they have learned and the programs they have created. The showcase will be held 4:00 to 6:00 on Monday (June 18) at the Valley Settlement House (33 Tompkins St, West Orange, NJ 07052). Pizza and refreshments will be served. Email me at somil.wl@gmail.com if you are interested.

Sincerely,
Somil Agarwal
