Mr. Hauser from Los Angeles CA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Draft project 07/29/14

My students need laptops for programming and FIRST LEGO League robotics.

My Students

Getting students to build, program, and compete in robotics competitions is the perfect way to spark an interest in science, technology, engineering, and math. Lets get my kids some laptops to get their programming done!

My students are primarily minority inner-city kids who predominately qualify for free or reduced lunches.

They are hungry for hands on activities that put forth real world problems for them to solve. Many of them do not having computers at home or available for them to use, and many do not see themselves pursuing STEM fields for a career until they take my robotics class!

My Project

My students will be using these laptops to compete in the FIRST Lego League competition by building, programming, and competing with Lego robots that they design themselves. Students will learn to use the EV3 programming language, as well as use Scratch, C, and other programming languages. They will be working in teams to compete against each other, as well as other schools.

How are we going to program without computers?!

These are absolutely vital for the day to day activities of the classroom to get the students programming, testing, and problem solving with their robots. Without these laptops students will be forced to share the antique computers that our district has not updated for over 10 years, and which work at a snails pace and frustrates them to no end. New laptops will make a WORLD of difference to them!
