Cultivating Creativity & Computational Thinking With BirdBrain Technologies
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.

About the Creator
I believe that all students should be provided doors of opportunities when it comes to learning experiences in the real world and truly support the four "C"s of 21st Century Learning, that of developing "Collaboration, Critical Thinking, Creativity, and Communication" skills that will make our students so much more marketable in the near future where there will be jobs that are not even thought of yet. To me, this is what Hummingbird is trying to support.
