The Description

With these funds I will begin our first STEAM-robotics and coding team at our school. With today being the age of technology, Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics has become the driving force to todays increasing STEAM careers, increasing by 79% since 1990. With the funds, I want to purchase Sphero kits and teach students how to code robotics. Through this program, I hope to instill STEAM skills and empathy. Students will be required to collaborate with others, understand various issues from other perspectives, and gather the needed skills to come up with different solutions. 

Back Up Plan

If we do not reach our goal I will purchase smaller parts of the kit in order to ignite their love and interest for STEAM. Depending on how much funds are raised, I would like to sign a team up for a virtual coding competition which only requires the program.

About the Creator

As a 24 year vetern middle school teacher, I have always strived to provide my students with opportunities to succeed academically as well as establish the skills needed for successful life beyond school. I love what I do but as time passes, providing these opportunities have become rather expensive for me to afford. I would really love to continue inspiring young minds for the next 10 years of my teaching career.
