Ms. Binsfield from San Diego CA is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Entering the World of Coding

My students need coding books, Ozobots and Ozobot Construction Materials to practice coding to help them become better computer science learners!

My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. I want them to know I believe in them and they can do anything.

I teach at a Title I school where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

My students live in an underserved, underprivileged community where resources are scarce. Despite these many hardships, my students are eager to learn and to do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.

My Project

Coding is the way to the future. With these Ozobot materials, my students can learn how to code in the classroom. They will learn the language of coding to make their Ozobots move on a certain track pattern, pick up objects, race other Ozobots, and work in groups.

What an exciting way to code and collaborate in groups!

It's so important to incorporate STEAM in the classroom. With so many careers in the ever-growing computer science field, children often receive little or no exposure to programming until high school or even college. These resources can bring computer science, programming, and coding to life for my students!

With technology and coding, I am building a classroom culture of Science and Robotics. I know that once I plant this seed, they'll definitely take an interest in the future!
