Ms. Silverthorn from Whitehall MI is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

First Robotics

My students need a camera to help document the season. The robotics team has to submit photos of what we achieved during the season to help us be eligible to receive awards.

My Students

My students are 12 passionate robotics middle school students. The first robotics program is a great program to prepare students for the future. Most of my students have been in the robotics program since they were in elementary. They are bright students, who want to change the future. They love being creative and are very thankful for the robotics program.

My students are excited to share what we have planned to do during the season.

We are ready to change the world one robot at a time.

My Project

These materials will help the team to document their season without having to rely on cellphones. The camera will be used during team meetings, competitions and events we host. The photos will be used to help to create our Engineering Notebook, which documents out entire season. This notebook is presented to judges. It also makes us eligible for awards during the season. Photos are a very important thing for us to have. It will also allow for members to learn how to document and learn how to take meaningful pictures. With the support of this project, it will help the team to have a successful season.
