Distance Robotics Production: The Journey of Becoming a Robo-Nerd
By: James Emley, ITI-Instructional Technology Facilitator and Rigoberto Cruz, Science/Math/Robotics Teacher - Franklin High School in Local District Central
It is evident that Rigoberto Cruz of Franklin High School in LAUSD’s Local District Central (LDC) has plenty of passion towards the success of the school robotics club. This evidence can be seen in the amount of time the students have continuously logged into Zoom for the club on a late Friday afternoon or Saturday morning, when most students and staff are relaxing after a long week. Not only have many students remained in the club for their entire 4 years of high school, but many of the young men and women can attribute their desire to join the STEM fields solely on the strong camaraderie found within the club.
