Mrs. Brown from Odessa FL is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

LEGO Explores Coding!

My students need LEGO Mindstorms Sets to explore computer science thoroughly.

  • $545 goal

This project expired on November 22, 2018.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are risk-takers. They are problem solvers. They are communicators. They are jumping in feet first into a new language - the language of coding. Learning coding is all about failing and then learning from your failures to get to ultimately reach success. Coding and Computer Science are highly sought after skills in the workforce but are also great ways to teach students how to really learn.

Our coding class explores many different aspects of coding and computer science, helping our students prepare for the future.

My Project

The materials in this Donor's Choose Project will allow my coding students to begin exploring coding through LEGO sets. The LEGO Mindstorm kit will truly allow my students to be hands on with coding.

In middle school students need a tactile learning experience to help them truly understand the abstract concepts they are learning.

The LEGO Mindstorm kit is a great way of allowing the students to be hands on while learning the basics of computer science. By giving to this Donor's Choose Project you will be giving my students a new way to learn computer science. This kit will really give my students a hands-on learning experience they will never forget.
