Mr. Palsgrove from Brooklyn NY is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need Micro:bit controllers and kits to enable them to turn their coding projects into engineering designs.
We are a public high school located in the Clinton Hill section of Brooklyn, New York City. We are creating an engineering program to get our student body interested in STEM subjects and to make them more competitive for secondary education. Over 80% of our students are African American. We are a school that only two years ago lacked everything from text books to computers. Our new administration has been working tirelessly to remedy this and as we move our school into the 21st century with technology, we aim to put technology into the hands of our students as well as teachers.
Our school's engineering program is a program that focuses on project-based, hands-on learning to students who have never engaged in the engineering design process before.
We want our school to offer the same programs that rival the best schools in NYC because we believe we have some of the best students in NYC.
As part of our fledgling engineering program, our high school students will be introduced to computer science, coding, and electronics.
This year we will be introducing coding using MIT's Scratch and Micro:Bit boards to implement electronics into student engineering projects.
Students will first learn to code using MIT's Scratch. We then incorporate Micro:Bit boards that will allow students to take their codes and use them to control electronics. This along with our 3D printers will allow our students to really use their creativity and develop some products of the future.
For our final phase, we teach our students to market their ideas and become young entrepreneurs.
