Coding Essentials

Amount Raised 57%

You can read here for more information about the benefits of teaching kids coding. 

These materials are reusable, so once we add them to our supply, we will be able to use them repeatedly. 

We need:

6 Ozobots: These are great intro coding robots for kids; you can code screen free with them and then use the computer to further coding skills. 

10 Micro:bits: Micro:bits are a pocket-sized computer. It’s a great low entry, high ceiling tech tool. 

6 MakeyMakey Classics:  Use everyday conductive items as touchpads to control a computer program. 

3D Design Program

Amount Raised 0%

Having used 3Doodler Start pens for the first time this past fall, there’s great interest in continuing to use these tools and expand class sizes for 3D design. 

We need to purchase 6 more 3Doodler Start pens to have a full class set of 12.  

We also need:

Plastic Strand Refill kit: 1200 quantity

5 STEM accessory kits

3Doodler pens definitely put the “A” in STEAM, and allow students to build projects from scratch. Our students use the pens for a variety projects, from engineering challenges such as a marble roller coaster to personal projects such as wearables (jewelry or fashion accessories).
