Mr. H. from Las Vegas NV is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Arduino in the Classroom

My students need these RFID Starter Kits and accessories to experience their coding in a real world situation. They will be using these materials to create a check-in and check-out system.

My Students

My students are always excited and to learn. They are really excited to get more technology into our classroom too. They want to learn how to use it to better their education and to make school a fun experience.

My students are a group of inquisitive and eager minds who come from many different backgrounds, languages, and home environments.

A lot of our school's student population come from homes where technology is hard to come by. My hopes for my students is that they are exposed to as much technology and innovation as they possibly can be.

My Project

Students will be using the RFID readers/cards and LED screens to create a digital check-in and check-out system for their class. They will be able to make their own unique code to be displayed on the screen every time they check in and out of class.

This project would improve my students' understanding of real world applications for coding as well as giving them practical experience with hobby electronics.

We all live in a world full of electronics and having my students affect his or her individual world will only better them. Not only will this project be an excellent skill builder for my class, but it will also be one which they will never forget.
