Mrs. Ketcham from Kansas City KS is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

STEM - Programming Students Learning Raspberry Pi

My students need Raspberry Pi kits to help them learn and understand programming! These are interactive and fun! I thought that they would be good to have students work in pairs with them!

My Students

My students and I are both learning programming this year! We are trying to learn different types of code!

My students are all inner city freshman who have chosen to be in a programming class!

They are young, excited, and active learners!

They enjoy to be actively learning and enjoy the times I have gamified their learning experience! They really enjoy working together and being social learners. They sometimes need to work on problem solving, so being able to provide more technology to my classes really helps!

My Project

Having a classroom set of Raspberry Pi Kits will help my students problem solve some popular situations in technology and programming! Students and teacher are going to be learning and going through the educational process of learning how to program using the very popular Raspberry Pi kits!

Your generous donation will help our students be more active learners in a program and STEM based classroom!

Using Raspberry Pi kits will help with this learning process! Technology and programming is a huge part along with problem solving and learning!
