Mr. Amen from Bethlehem PA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Programming the Future of Electronics, Energy, and Engineering

My students need to be able to understand hands-on energy conversion from an electronics perspective while being introduced to coding through these Elegoo Arduino Starter Kits.

My Students

My students are the type to give people hope in our public education system. They go above and beyond to show empathy, understanding, and support for our entire community.

This appreciative student body deserves everything we can give them in a sense that they will perform and give back in the future.

We are lucky to have the chance to teach them as they give their township butterflies with all the growth they show throughout the year. We're honored to have them and we'd do anything for them.

My Project

This year, I spent over $600 of my own money on these Elegoo coding kits and sensors to teach students how to use programming language to engineer different types of energy. The excitement in them when they complete a project gives you butterflies as an educator.

They troubleshoot, collaborate, research, and communicate for the sheer joy of completing the project of their choice with these Elegoo kits.

I need 10 more kits so that the building of projects becomes more individualized. This summer, we are having students develop engineering-electronics curriculum for future generations of students to teach them the basics of electronics and energy. To have enough kits would mean for us to develop this curriculum on a more 1-to-1 level. This means more hands-on time for more students.
