Past robots for present education

What is RoboRecovery?

RoboRecovery aims to reshape the robotics educational landscape in New Orleans by inspiring more underserved students to pursue careers in STEM.

RoboRecovery collects donations of used LEGO Mindstorms NXT and EV3 sets from anyone in the robotics community. We partnered with the STEM Library Lab to loan these out to local teachers, and we provide lesson plans and curricular support to streamline classroom robotics implementation. 

FLL Donors:

  1. We collect donations of LEGO Mindstorms robots from the robotics community across the United States. 
  2. Donations will be then shipped to the STEM Library Lab
  3. Donations will be sorted into standardized kits and stored, ready to be loaned to local teachers. 
  4. Complete our quick interest survey today!

New Orleans Teachers:

  1. Teachers can borrow classroom sets of robotics kits from the STEM Library Lab
  2. Teachers will have access to free LEGO robotics professional development workshops and complimentary lesson plans tailored to their classroom needs.
  3. Teachers, with the support from volunteer teaching assistants, mentor students as they learn engineering and design principles.
