Mrs. McCoy from Stockton CA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Sphero Around the Classroom

My students need a class set of Sphero robots! We can use these to code and learn JavaScript!

  • $1,988 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

The kids who sign up for my class are excited about learning! They want to do the STEM projects and learn about the world around them. Most of the 7th graders will continue on to be in my 8th grade class. Kids who aren't able to sign up for my class are welcome to join me after school for STEM Club! We have fun there too!

I have kids who are inquisitive, engaged, and willing to put in the effort to learn the material.

They love to ask questions. The kids have embraced STEM activities and thrive with the hands on projects. I just LOVE teaching at this school!

I teach Space Center and STEM classes. I am always trying to incorporate new technology in my classroom. I am taking a field trip next year on a STEM Discovery Tour in Boston. One of the places we will visit is FIRST Robotics. I would love to have some of my STEM club students be aware of FIRST Robotics before we actually go there next Spring.

My Project

We have other kits that we use in the classroom for coding but this new technology teaches coding using JavaScript. Since I am not a computer science major, I need all the help I can get to help me teach my students more about different computer languages.

I had three sets donated to the classroom this past week.

My kids were able to play with them in my STEM Club. It was so great to see their eyes light up, sharing, talking through to figure out what to do next.

Having a fun and engaging piece of technology makes it easier for the kids to learn without even realizing that they are learning!

I would love a class set for my class because I can use this in all my different classes. It is geared to teach learners at all different levels! I love having a teaching tool that reaches all learners!
