My students need HP monitors with HDMI and VGA connectivity in order to do more powerful computing projects with their Raspberry Pi kits. At the moment we have 10 Pi's and only 5 monitors.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are incredibly techie and curious. They love to learn about new technology. They are lucky to have a chance to learn about STEM technology, robotics, and coding. When we got a new 3D printer in the classroom, my students showed great interest in exploring all the different objects they could design and print.
Despite being second language learners and from low socioeconomic households, my students thirst for knowledge and need resources to express themselves creatively.
My students need the tools that will help them learn about coding, animation, design, and other creative endeavors in STE[A]M.
My students have recently discovered the amazing capabilities of the Raspberry Pi 3.0 kit. They spend hours and hours coding with Sonic Pi, Python for Minecraft, and Mathematica. When they work with the Pi's, my students are creative and collaborative. When they finish a project they love to share it. Without an additional 5 HDMI monitors, we cannot use all the Pi kits we have. This means that at least 10 more students in each of my STEAM classes are missing out on the power of the Pi every day we go without monitors. When they are coding with Python for Minecraft, they are actually creating environments that bring scenes from their English texts to life. When they are composing music with Sonic Pi, they are learning to debug code and to mix different types of sounds together.
