Mr. McClure from Cedarville MI is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Computer Programming Our Way to FIRST Place!

My students need a laptop capable of efficiently running our robotics code for our Elementary, Middle School, and High School Robotics teams.

My Students

My students attend a small K-12 school in a rural community in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Many are free/reduced lunch and eager to come to school to socialize and see other people.

"There is not much for a kid to do in our community!" is what many students at our school think/say.

They feel that the only activities for them to do are athletics and clubs at school.

Hunting and fishing is big in our area. We have a large Native American population. We have a great group of kids who deserve all we can offer them; but sometimes resources for extras are cut short due to budgets.

My Project

These computer components will give our students a more equal playing field when going to FIRST Robotics competitions. Right now our students are using the laptop provided to rookie teams in 2014 to run our Elementary, Middle School, and High School robotics teams. With this computer, we would have a big upgrade and be able to write programs that would compile and build much quicker.

All 3 or our teams would use this for programming their robots!

It would also make programming easier for us as a group because the screen is much larger than our old laptop. With more memory, a larger screen, and updated technology; we would be able to bring our programs up to the level of our imaginations. Their is no limit to our design ideas except those we find would take too long to compile. With this faster computer, we could work around those issues and towards an improved FIRST experience.
