Introduction: Why Roborobo?
Our world is growing in
technological advances exponentially
by the minute. In order to adhere to
these changes and keep students up to
date, we examined how to incorporate
STEM, science, technology,
engineering, and math, into an
elementary classroom. Roborobo is a
unique classroom opportunity that
allows students to review and
implement the engineering design
process while also learning common
core curriculum in math and science.
Possible Classroom Activities
State Standards
• Measurement & Data
• MCC4.MD.6 Measure angles in
whole- number degrees using a
protractor. Sketch angles of
specified measure.
• MCC4.MD.7 Recognize angle
measure as additive. Solve
addition and subtraction problems
to find unknown angles on a
diagram in real world and
mathematical problems, e.g., by
using an equation with a symbol
for the unknown angle measure.
• MCC4.OA.1 Interpret a
multiplication equation as a
comparison. Represent verbal
statements of multiplicative
comparisons as multiplication
• MCC3.MD.3 Draw a scaled
picture graph and a scaled bar
graph to represent a data set with
several categories. Solve one- and
two-step “how many more” and
“how many less” problems using
information presented in scaled
bar graphs.
• MCC3.MD.8 Solve real world
and mathematical problems
involving perimeters of polygons,
including finding the perimeter
given the side lengths, finding an
unknown side length, and
exhibiting rectangles with the
same perimeter and different areas
or with the same area and
different perimeters.
• Multiplication
• Make It Move with
• Bot Gons
• Run, Robot, Run
Classroom Goals
• Allow students to work with
Roborobo to explore the
Engineering Design Process
• Successfully gain student
understanding of why
robotics, STEM, and the EDP
are life applicable concepts
• Use Roborobo to aid in
learning state standards in
math and science.
• Expose elementary students to
robotics at a young age
This project allowed us as future
teachers to explore ways in which
robotics can be incorporated into the
classroom. We have found that
classroom activities can often be
altered or extended so that students
use Roborobo to further their
understanding in math and science
standards. It is important to see the
value in STEM curriculum and to not
limit our students’ learning
experiences with worksheets and
seminars; robotics provides active and
engaged learning of state standards
while offering exposure to advanced
