Early Childhood Robotics Club

Help me give my students an early childhood robotics experience by donating a WeDo Robotics kit!

My Students

I work in a Title I school in Utah. The students that I see each day are curious enthusiastic and ready to learn. Being a Title I school, our students mostly come from low income, economically disadvantaged homes. Our student body is very diverse with students from many nationalities and ethnic backgrounds. Some of my students go to a day care situation after school so they do not have a parent/grandparent home until late at night or morning. I would like to give my students opportunities to learn computer programming and see how it can benefit them in their lives.

My Project

I am asking for help purchasing 1 Lego We-Do kit for my school's Code and Robotics Club. Currently provide coding and robotics experiences for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students so we would like to add an early childhood robotics club to our existing club. The We-Do kit is specifically designed for younger students as they try coding and robotics for the first time. Our school would like to start the Early Childhood Coding and Robotics club by making sure that the first experiences our students have with coding and robotics are age appropriate so that our students will have positive experiences which will encourage them to stay in our club throughout their elementary years. By beginning early they will be able to advance in their coding and robotics skills so that they will be able to move into more advanced coding experiences at a younger age. This experience may give them the motivation to pursue computer science as a career choice some day.
