Since 2015, Infosys Foundation USA has teamed up with DonorsChoose to bring computer science (CS) and making into classrooms. Through their Pathfinders Institute, thousands of K–12 teachers across the US trained up their CS skills, from coding, to makerspaces, to robotics, and beyond. Now, Infosys Foundation USA is helping teachers get the hands-on resources, kits and materials they need to bring those lessons to life for their students.
A few months into the new school year, a key goal for teachers has come into focus: helping kids fall in love with learning after nearly two years of change and uncertainty. Our friends at Infosys Foundation USA recognize how transformational it can be for teachers to bring a robot or coding kit into the classroom to spark engaging, and innovative learning. If you have never seen the way a student lights up when they see a robot in their classroom, you’ll have to take a teacher’s word for it — it’s unmatched!
“When students are given the opportunity to create something interactive that they think is cool, their engagement levels increase, and they retain more information. Robotics in schools can help students turn their frustration into creativity and innovation.” —Mrs. Bates, a middle school teacher from Michigan
Starting November 29, you can team up with Infosys Foundation USA to help teachers get computer science resources into their classroom.
While funding lasts, Infosys Foundation USA will double any donation made to qualifying computer science and maker ed projects from K-12 teachers.
