My students need two Arduino Starter Kits and five OWI 14-in-1 Solar Robots.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
The rural mountains of the Pacific Northwest are a far cry from the burgeoning tech industries of the NW tech corridor. My rural middle school students deserve the opportunities afforded to other districts in STE(A)M learning. The hands-on aspect of robotics is an amazing learning opportunity.
My students are a 7-8 grade group of diverse learners who have an exceptional grasp on technology skills despite the staggering lack of technology funding in our tiny rural district.
The are bright and hungry to join the modern world with a firm understanding of the critical thinking and collaboration skills our workforce demands.
For our unit in robotics, the students will be provided a fully immersive, hands-on experience unlike anything they have experienced before. The students will start this experience by building a DIY Spout beetle bot (funded by me), internalizing the key concepts of electronics and robotics. From there, the OWI 14-in-1 robots will provide a deeper learning experience for students in real world applications of emerging technologies and robotics.
These students are afforded so little in our small, rural district.
These materials will allow these students to be on an equitable playing field with their contemporaries as they proceed in future academic and workplace endeavors.
