I have the privilege of teaching twenty-eight 11-year-olds in a low-income area. For most students, school is the most consistent and safest environment. As their teacher, I want to make sure they feel welcomed and loved within my class.
The kids come to school every day eager to learn.
Due to limited resources, school is the only place the students are given the opportunity of technology. The students all love technology and any opportunity to get up and move around!
My students do not have a lot of opportunities outside of school to experience technology. I quickly noticed that they thrive during technology time. Coding has become one of their favorite elective subjects in our classroom. I want to show the students where coding can take them, starting with a Dash Robot!
By donating to our project, you will be helping increase student engagement and supporting the idea of college and career readiness.
I want to give them as many opportunities as possible to experience different technologies that could lead to desired careers in their future. The Dash Robot will be the beginning to a great experience of coding!
