My 1st graders are an eager, energetic, very bright bunch of suburban Title-1 students. My students lack resources and opportunities to extend their learning beyond the classroom.
I want to provide more rigorous opportunities for them to explore and learn to meet those challenges.
Many of my students are underachieving gifted an, ESL and economically impoverished. They need additional supports to help them advance academically.
Their minds are eager to meet the 21st century challenges our world is opening up for them.
The STEM Coding Robot Mouse and Bit Coding Robot I am requesting for my students, are tools to develop technological skills they can use for career and college planning. Having access to these materials will allow students to engage in the practice of coding on a regular basis. Coding is one of the fastest growing career fields. In order to meet the demand and have a pool of qualified applicants, we need to begin preparing students as early as possible.
The coding mice are early learning tools used to engage and develop an interest in computer coding.
By exposing students to these skills early, I hope to spark a greater interest in them to go into advanced computer and technology careers.
