Mrs. Harper from Gunter TX is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Starting Students Early With STEM and Coding

My students need interactive materials such as the Botley Robot. These hands on activity sets will provide an opportunity for my students to dive into STEM and coding activities.

My Students

My students come from a variety of backgrounds. Our school is nestled in a small community of about 1,500 people an hour north of the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. While a majority of the students have grown up in the community or been here for several years now, we are starting to see some change. The DFW area has exploded due to jobs and people are moving in from all over. This has created a change in some of our new student population.

In order to achieve the most meaningful engagement, my goal is to create a comfortable and exciting environment.

We are also a Title I school. My students have a fairly extreme range in abilities and levels. We are constantly trying to be innovative with what we have, but it would be great to bring a new dynamic and more unique learning experiences to our class.

My Project

I would like to get more STEM and coding items or activity sets that can provide our students with more hands on experiences. Our students don't have art or a creative class where they can build and create. The Botley Robot will give them a jump start on coding activities and allow them to work collaboratively while building their logic and problem solving skills. I also think they would have a much deeper understanding of our science TEKS that involve force, motion, magnets, and simple machines if they had interactive items to manipulate during our science and work station time.
