Ms. Boren from Saint Louis MO is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Computer Science: Build - Create - Do

My students need hands-on materials to learn Computer Science, Engineering, and Design thinking. LEGO can provide just that. Having the materials like the Mindstorms kit allows students to design, build, and imagine.

My Students

We have 85 fifth grade students who will participate in this grant activity. Many of the students are from low socioeconomic families. We have a high rate of free or reduced lunches. The students participate in a co-taught environment because 25% are English Language Learners.

Many of our students do not have the background knowledge of many science or robotic concepts.

We try integrate many hands on activities for our students to experience what it is like to be a scientists. They love to build. Anything that I can put into their hands increases their learning exponentially.

My Project

Teaching in a 5th grade classroom, my students are building their bridge into their future. As you read I work in a low economical school. Many of the students' parents have never went to college. Work in areas of retail or fast food, which there is nothing wrong with that.

But I want my students' bridge into the future to be more.

I want them to know they have the skills to be engineers. They can be scientists. They can be inventors.

With the help of this grant and the products, I will be able to put science in their hands and give them an opportunity to build-create-do.
