Mr. Auriemma from Bronx NY is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students Retro Game Consoles (N64 Remote, Atari Flashback, NES Classic Game Console)
My students come from high poverty/ low-income families who have not been exposed to many of the cool, amazing things the world has to offer. All of them are filled with curiosity and the eagerness to learn as much as their little minds will allow them to. Hands-on experiences are the best ways to keep these students engaged. Just because these students aren't in the best of neighborhoods doesn't mean that they should be deprived of the many materials offered elsewhere.
Computer Science is going to be mandatory in all schools by the year 2022. In my school we already started implementing it and the students are very excited. In a huge portion of the unit we talk about many games of the past and what the future might look like. It would be very beneficial for my students to get actual hands on experiences to different parts of history of how some of the consoles back then looked like and work. Students will compare different consoles of history to what they are used to now and what they think consoles might look like in the future. Students will discuss the different remotes, how complicated (easy) the coding in games back then were, the graphics (pixels), as well as the smoothness of the games/ what the console looks like as well as the cartridges. This is a very fun and engaging subject for students to really get involved in.
