Mr. Reina from Dallas TX is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Code, Create, Amaze

Help me give my students in my coding club a meaning to see their hard work in coding through movement or art with a Sphero ball and an Osmo Little Genius Kit.

My Students

I think I have the best students in the state of Texas. They approach learning like it is the most precious thing in the world and have an awesome sense of responsibility in their academics. Half of the population that I teach is learning English as a second language, but it does not stop them from being great thinkers and problem solvers in this changing world.

I want that each student that passes through my classroom to have an opportunity to be successful at their craft.

That is why I provide them with experiences that will impact them for life.

My Project

My coding club started last semester as part of the co-curricular program at my school. My kids are excited to be part of it and be able to learn a skill that is highly sought after for the future. The students are able to build lines of code through Scratch on CSFirst and create animations on the computer.

I want to take it to the next level by having the kids build the same lines of code, but also that they can see how code could be used to physically move an object or create something.

There are several coding technologies on the market, but I think that Sphero and Osmo are perfect for my club due to the versatility of both products and the coding language used, and a kid user friendly interface.

My students will be able to gain a basic to intermediate knowledge of coding on these two platforms, and then be able to take on bigger project on CSFirst.
