Help me give my students Bee-Bot programmable robots so they can learn how coding works while having fun practicing their math, reading, science and social studies skills.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
The majority of my students are from low socioeconomic families. They consist of students in kindergarten through fifth grade. They are eager and excited to learn new things and look forward to working with technology, Makerspaces, and STEM stations in the library.
Most of my students do not have books or technology available for them to use at home to explore coding, robotics, and futuristic careers.
The students love hands-on activities that help connect them to what they are learning during the school year. Since many students in our district were displaced during Hurricane Harvey, I want to add some new and exciting learning tools to the library to make them feel more at home and excited about learning.
These Bee-Bots will allow my students to practice coding skills while incorporating the educational learning that every student needs to have well rounded learning experiences. The students will be able to drive the Bee-Bots to their answers to show mastery of basic reading, math, science and social studies skills. It will also help to increase their academic vocabulary in each subject by having them interact with the words on a regular basis. The Bee-Bots will make this experience a fun and exciting way to learn these basic skills but will also provide them with a basic understanding of coding which is one of the top jobs of the future.
