Computer Science for All

Help me give my students an opportunity to explore coding with this new technology with an iPad and coding mouse activity kits.

My Students

Students in my school come from a low income area where 99% of them are awarded free lunch. Many of them come from broken homes, bounce around to different relatives, and some are even in shelters. The school has 5-7 classes in each grade, and many classrooms have many students with special needs who need a little extra TLC, visuals, and repetition. My school offers these kids a warm, safe, and loving environment daily.

Although most students have a tough start in life, they come to school eager to learn and do their very best.

My Project

The students will have an opportunity to learn about coding by making the mouse move. The kit requires teamwork to build the maze and program the mouse to move through it. The classroom consists of 30 students. With two activity kits the students will have an opportunity to participate in a smaller group while working with the mazes.

The students will be able to use the kit to explore coding, be creative, promote peer interaction and problem solve.

The students will be able to share successes and challenges. The students will then use the iPad to code on Code.org once they gather a better understanding of coding. This provides children access to computer science plugged and unplugged.
