TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
Help me give my students the materials they need to become inventors. They will use the Arduino's to create physical technologies to address a need in their community. The other supplies will allow them to prototype their inventions.
Our High School Library is open to approximately 1200 9-12th grade students. We are a Title 1 school meaning we are a school that faces poverty and a large portion of our students are high needs learners. Given that fact, our students are learning that no matter what challenges they face in life they can solve it with a little ingenuity. The library is a safe place for students to develop these skills and to work on passion projects.
Our students have the characteristics, qualities and creativity to be the changemakers our world needs.
For this project students will be working with a member of our community that has a real need or a "real-world problem". As students learn about the problem their partner has they will brainstorm ideas on how to help with the problem. While designing solutions students will need to create some sort of physical technology. A physical technology is something that has a working computational aspect but it is more than just an app or software program. This will involve a significant amount of problem solving and determination. They will work and develop several prototypes, starting with extremely low tech and progressing to a prototype that can fully demonstrate function. The students will have a chance to possibly patent their inventions and submit them to various design challenges. But the most important part is that they will be making human connections, they will be learning empathy and designing with purpose.
With the supplies from this project, students will be empowered to be inventive, creative problem solvers that can impact the world in a real and meaningful way.
