Graphing Calculator Robots

Applicant’s Name: David Salvitti
Project Title: Graphing Calculator Robots
Budget Request: $680.10

The grant money will be used to purchase simple robots that are programed using TI graphing calculators. The robots will be used in my 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Digital Applications classes to teach measuring, simple programming, and problem solving skills. Each student in every grade will acquire hands-on experience with the robots, which will be built upon every year. It is my goal to have each student be able to design a program, enter it into the robot, test the program, and troubleshoot any errors in their programs.
