My students need Dot to help them learn more about coding.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
This year I taught 4th grade and next year I will loop to a classroom of 5th grade self-contained gifted and talented students in the largest inner-city school district in Ohio. My students are part of our district's academically gifted and talented program. My classroom is diverse with students coming from all parts of the district.
Students learn best when instruction and learning match their learning style.
My students love technology and crave for anything that expands their knowledge. Opportunities for collaboration and hands-on learning provide my students with real-world skills.
Coding is today's language of creativity. My students need the opportunity to think outside the box and understand the technology that they are using every day.
Dot is a clever little robot with multiple sensors and a quirky personality that will allow my students to learn about robotics and develop fundamental coding and problem-solving skills while having fun.
I would like my students to not only play with the robot, but have the opportunity to compete in the Wonder Workshop Robotics Competition. Coding is the new team sport for future tech leaders and innovators. I know that this real world experience will provide them with life long skills that they can use in their future.
