Our school is very different from most schools in Alabama. 86.9% of our students participate in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). To qualify for free lunch, children's family income must be under $15,171 in 2015 (below 130% of the poverty line), so our students come from very low socioeconomic backgrounds with very limited resources and life experiences.
My goal is to give my students the opportunity to experience life beyond their neighborhoods.
These students are amazing, capable, smart, and hungry for knowledge. With the right resources and guidance, these children can change the world.
These materials will make a huge impact on my students, who might otherwise never have the opportunity to be exposed to all of the wonderful possibilities of the world of coding. Before last week, my students had never even heard the term "coding", its meaning, or what you could do with it. My students need the Botley Coding Robot to engage and excite them about coding and robotics. By introducing them to the basics of an area with the possibility for exponential growth of research, experimentation, and discovery, a love for applied mathematics and science can be unlocked and nutured. These materials alone could inspire some of the next great minds in science to fulfill their unrecognized potential!
