Mrs. Hoag from Council BLFS IA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Coding with Robotics

My students need 10 programmable Edison robots to learn how to program algorithms and understand sequential order of coding while having an object react to their code. This will allow 2-3 students per robot to collaborate

My Students

This project is for a 5th grade career fair and for after school/summer clubs. The demographics for students in our city is 70% free/reduced lunch, limiting them to very few technology gadget items. This particular device will give the students an opportunity to use block coding in a way where they will experience a physical item move about depending on how it is programmed by the students. Our district serves students with a range of disabilities, including intellectual disabilities, emotional disturbance, autism spectrum disorder and specific learning disabilities. In order to have students participate in after school and club activities for free, we are searching for donors that will allow a lower socioeconomic student population have access to technology that will prepare them for a possible STEM career in the future.

My Project

The Edison robots I am requesting will be used for after school and summer programs in grades 6-8. They will also be a tool used in our city wide annual 5th grade career fair and will expose this age group to a technology career. The students will use Block coding which is a great way for the beginning coder to learn sequential coding order, loops and variables. In order to expand on coding abilities, this project will allow the student to see a physical object react to their code.

The robot will only do what it is programmed to do, which is an essential component to understanding computer science.

Understanding the logic behind computers is an important 21st century skill that all young students should know in order to prepare them for the future of technology.
