My students need 20 Arduino kits to bring programming to life. With these kits, they will be able to learn programming basics and create hands-on projects to show off.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our introductory computer science class aims to hook students with hands-on projects along with a rigorous introduction to programming. Students learn a variety of languages and complete a variety of projects, preparing them to apply coding to a field of their choice as well as to take AP CS.
My school is a public charter school in Newark, NJ.
Students are admitted by random lottery. Our school has unflinchingly high expectations and aims to prepare every student to attend a four year college of their choice. Our students and teachers are mission-driven and motivated to do whatever it takes to close the socioeconomic achievement gap.
My students will use these Arduino starter kits to experiment with basic programming structures; ultimately, they will be able to design and build their own projects. This will be an awesome introduction to programming and electronics, in addition to an opportunity for design thinking and collaboration.
We live in an age where the more experience students have with programming, the more expansive their opportunities will be in college and beyond.
Having a class set of Arduinos will expose so many more students to the joy of coding and the opportunities it affords.
