My students are a diverse group of learners at a school with over 70% free and reduced lunch trying out Computer Science concepts in an AP course. For most, this is their first exposure to CS topics.
Most students will be first-generation college students and have limited exposure to technology careers available to them.
A large portion of the course the students are taking is meant to expose students to possibilities for their futures. Students are seeing how digital data touches every possible career.
Having the Hummingbird Bird Brain Products will be a fabulous way for me to reach students who are more hands-on in their learning and would prefer to learn coding in this interactive way.
This product allows students to show their creativity and gives an alternative approach to coding!
In addition to just classroom use, students will be able to work before and after school to try out projects. Ultimately, I would like this to spark enough interest to start a robotics club at my high school down the road. That is not something we have had in years past.
