Professional development

Python and Robots on the Scene!

I need funding for this trip so that I can educate myself on more coding and robotics material so I can offer robotics to my students.

My Students

My students come to our school as an alternative to expulsion from their boundary schools. Some have been in trouble with the law, have truancy issues and many other problems. Some are environmental problems and others are choices they have made.

I make it my first priority to help my students learn skills that will help them in whatever class or situation they find themselves.

My students come to me lacking some of the necessary skills for success; we work together to add those skills to their toolbox of success.

My Project

This opportunity to work with the coding language Python and Robotics will allow my school to start a Robotics Club. My students will gain the knowledge necessary to compete in robotics. They will also be gaining skills that can help them with their other classes.

My students need the skills that robotics and the programming languages can give them; the jobs they will eventually have need the problem solving and logic skills that are found in coding and robotics.

This type of programming will be the foundation of our Computer Science curriculum and the Robotics club we are starting. Please help me make this a reality for our students!
