Mrs. Riggs from Cincinnati OH is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

21st Century Tech Dreams

My students need Ozobots (which can be used with or without connection to a screen) and Little Bits to help teach them the principles of coding, design thinking, and how electronics work.

My Students

My students are curious, especially when it comes to technology. They ask a lot of questions and they want to try new things. Every student at my school sees me for technology class at least once a week.

In my classroom, we talk a lot about how technology will likely be a part of their jobs in the future and how it helps us today.

My students are creative, ask a lot of questions, and treat our technology with care and respect. They appreciate every opportunity they get. As their teacher, I want to expose them to as many aspects of technology as I can in order to help them dream about the many things they can do with it.

My Project

We need Ozobots and Little Bits to help teach them the principles of coding, design thinking, and how electronics work. Ozobots are a great tool for introducing students to basic concepts of robotics. Younger students can use them with special markers to create specific pathways for the robots to follow as they learn about coding principals. Older elementary students can begin to learn programming concepts with the Ozobots as they use the computers in our lab to program their bots and then test their programs with their bots. Little Bits allow students of all ages to learn how electronics that they use everyday work.

Logical thinking, computational thinking, and design thinking are all aspects of using both Ozobots and Little Bits.

The Little Bits I am requesting will not only teach students how the electronics they use every day work, but they will also teach students how to code.

As a technology teacher, I know I am preparing students for jobs that don't exist yet- jobs that will likely involve robotics, coding, electronics, and technology in general. My students deserve to be prepared for this world with access to the best current educational technology out there.

Thank you for helping make our 21st Century Tech Dreams come true!
