Why "Invest"?

As a STEM educator, it is important that my students are able to apply the topics we learn about. Robotics is one of the easiest ways to apply many of the topics we cover whether it is math, science, engineering, or computer science. Robotics covers so many aspects that when a student is able to build a functioning robot that it makes many of these high level concepts more concrete. That is why I want to introduce my students to robotics through BirdBrain Technologies.

The Finch is a small robot designed to inspire and delight students learning computer science by providing them a tangible physical representation of their coding. The Hummingbird is a kit that allows students to create and program robots built from electronic components and craft materials. Through these kits, my students will be able to create and engage with technology which is critical when preparing them for the future.

It would be amazing if you could support our fundraiser for BirdBrain Technologies with a generous investment.

Here is the breakdown of our goal of $1,864.00 (rounded up to the nearest dollar) for BirdBrain Technologies' Hummingbird Duo Classroom Kit

BirdBrain Technologies Hummingbird Duo Classroom Kit (x2) $1,528.20
PledgeCents partner product sourcing & logistics $186.40
PledgeCents fulfillment & labor $93.20
WePay payment and processing fee $55.92
Total goal amount $1,864.00 (rounded up to the nearest dollar)

The amounts calculated above are used to ensure the fundraising goal covers all fees. Actual fees will be calculated and collected on a per transaction basis, therefore total amounts may vary once the fundraiser ends. Calculated fees consist of a 10% sourcing fee, 5% fulfillment & labor fee and 3% processing fee.

If we do not meet our goal...

I will attempt to supplement the cost so that I can purchase a BirdBrain Technologies kit for my students.

At Central Christian Academy our goal is to teach and model God's eternal truths to our students. We feel that the most important part of a child's academic and spiritual training is the teacher being a "Living Curriculum" for the student each and every day. Each teacher has a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. When the home, the local church and the Christian school work in unison, we can build young people for Christian Service. A Christian philosophy of education first of all recognizes God as the creator and sustainer of all things and as the source of all truth. God has revealed Himself to mankind both through His creation in a general way and in a special way through His inspired, infallible, inherent, authoritative Word -- the Bible.
