iPad for STEM Robotics

Help me give my students an Apple iPad, protective case, and equipment protection plan.

My Students

My school is a Title I school with a significant percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch. The mobility rate has always been high, but over the last five years it has increased dramatically. Our school is a safe haven where students are fed, clothed, and cared for above all else.

"The object of teaching a child is to enable him to get along without a teacher." (Elbert Hubbard.) This quote reflects my goal as a teacher, to create independent learners.

Each morning I am eagerly greeted by an amazing and diverse group of students, who come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences. Many of my students are struggling to cope with the multifaceted dilemmas of living in poverty.

Despite their obstacles, the one thing that I see in all their eyes is an eagerness to learn. They hang on every word I say, and even beg to stay after school to do more work. My goal is to provide them with educational experiences that will sustain and promote this sense of curiosity and desire for lifelong learning.

My Project

Science and technology are extremely popular with today's youth; they are also a pathway to career opportunities in the future. Engaging in technology activities when young, can help to stimulate interest in those fields, develop mastery of necessary technologies, and energize the classroom.

The collaborative nature of robotics in the classroom helps students develop key real-world STEM skills such as teamwork, problem solving, communication, cooperation, and generating creativity.

Through previous grants, I was able to purchase the Lego WeDo and Wonder Workshop (Dot and Dash) robotics kits. Unfortunately, I do not have a compatible device to run the software programs. I have asked for an iPad to bring these programs to life.
