"Creativity is the key to success in the future, and primary education is where teachers can bring creativity in children at that level." - A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Our school is a Math, Science, and Technology (MST) public school campus for K-5 students.
Although our students come from many different cultures and socioeconomically diverse backgrounds, they are all held to the same high expectations. Our school goal is to develop 21st century learners by teaching the students to think like creators and inventors. In doing this, students are given many hands-on experiences with Project Based Learning to encourage curiosity and problem solving. Therefore, it only makes sense that the library offer the same hands-on experiences. The students can connect and extend their learning in the classrooms to the library.
Our 21st century school library is more than just books and a quiet place to read. It is a safe space to collaborate, take risks, and explore with peers. My students need a Sphero to help them learn coding. Providing the students with the Sphero will allow them to collaborate and learn coding and computer programming which will give them the opportunity to expand their learning into the future. These valuable skills will be needed to obtain great jobs as they head into the work force in a few years.
Donations for this project will make a positive impact in my students' lives.
The materials will encourage students to explore new fields of interests as they work collaboratively.
