Robot Platforms and Projector

Help me give my students Robot Platforms for their Micro:bits and a document projector so they can complete their robotics projects.

My Students

I teach freshman to returning seniors who primarily are on the Autism Spectrum. Some of my students have varying degrees of impairments with cognitive, sensory processing, language and social difficulties.

My students are learning job skills, and some are working toward industry certifications.

I want my students to be ready to enter the work force when they leave school. Many of the younger freshman are exploring and learning about career choices. Some of students know what they want to pursue and are taking my classes to get needed skills and certifications.

The classes are Exploring Computer Science, Introduction to IT, Web Development, Microsoft Certified Professional and A+ Computer Maintenance and Repair.

My Project

Our classes need more robot platforms for their Micro:bit. What this is is a kit so they can build a robot during their robotic section of Exploring Computer Science. We have two robot platforms that we were able to get through Donors Choose, but we need eight more so we will have enough for the whole class to make a robot. Please help us as we have already started the robotics section and need these materials right away.

Our classroom also needs a document projector so student's can see how I setup and configure the robots using the overhead projector.

This camera will connect to my computer and allow me to project parts and documents to our projector. Since most of our students are on the Autism Spectrum, this will be a very useful piece of equipment for us. I have students that are at lower reading levels and need step by step oral and visual instructions in order to complete assignments. Since some of our assignments are on paper and hands on projects where they need to see what I'm doing, this wonderful tool will allow me to show them what I am doing using our overhead projector. I have students that can't complete assignments without this kind of assistance, and this tool will help them see what they need to do.

We so appreciate your support and these robots will help our students learn how to program. Thank you very much for your help!
