Abstract

This presentation outlines how Lego/Robotics are used to promote science learning in middle school students. Previously, these types of laboratory materials have been shown to increase inquiry and promote interest in science in an ESL classroom (Robinson, 2005). These students were selected from a pool of students who sign-up for the class. The Lego/Robotics instruction will occur for a full-semester during their enrichment period. While this is an enrichment course, the students will be measured on their ability to improve on the state mandated science achievement tests. Specific sub-categories relating to physical science and scientific reasoning will be targeted.
