Help me give my students a stem kit to build their computer science skills in coding.
The students in our school are special because they each come to school with a sense of community, family, and wonder despite the difficult situations or hardships they each have in their personal lives. I am amazed every single day, seeing the effort and dedication my students put forth. Homelessness, divorce, parent(s) in jail, gangs, abuse, lack of meals, or local shootings are sadly all too common with the population of children our school serves. Regardless of their personal home lives, they each deserve the same exposure and resources of children everywhere, including the more affluent areas of our city.
All students are special, but not all students are afforded the same resources or funding to help ensure they will have equal opportunities to meet the challenges of today and the future.
Our students are very interested in making a better life for themselves and their families at the age of eight. They have needed to grow up faster than their years to navigate a world that children are usually happily ignorant of. This knowledge has given them each an urgency to learn. They know that technology, science, and math will be keys to unlocking their futures!
Children are now needing to use technology to advance their education. Our lives are becoming more and more digitally dependent. Education continues to use with new and amazing programs, devices, or digitally completed tasks.
Learning the concepts behind coding and programming will give my students an early understanding to not just use technology, but control it.
The Makey Makey STEM Kit will be used as a step ladder to more complicated coding. Using physical pieces that students will use to build a connection between tangible elements and digital programing will be a fun and exciting way to begin their coding future.
