My second-grade scholars come from different socio-economic backgrounds. They range between the ages of 7 and 8 years old and receive their education in an urban environment with a population of 43.4% Black, Non-Hispanic, 26.5% Hispanic, 24.4% White, Non-Hispanic, and 4.6% Multiracial. My school participates in the Federal Free School Lunch program where 100% of our scholars receive a nutritional meal every day. They come to school despite what they are going through and work hard to accomplish a set goal.
We are also one of few STEM schools in the school district that provides all of our scholars with an equal opportunity for innovation, engineering and design principles, and stewardship within the context of cross-curricular, authentic problem-based learning units.
My scholars have really been enjoying their time with making and breaking codes! Unfortunately, I do not have any Osmo games that will show differentiation in my class. With these games, it will allow for me to expand my students world of coding.
This environment is the only opportunity for many (if not most) of my scholars to explore the endless possibilities of STEM.
This is why these games are essential for my scholars to obtain. Investing in these scholars through STEM will really propel hem into the future. Funding this project will give my students "Osmo" chance at coding!
