The Description

With these funds I will purchase the items and training needed to add a STEAM Lab/Makerspace to our existing Library/Media Center.  The purchase of two KIBO 21 Robotics Kits from Kinder Lab Robotics, Inc will allow our lab to bring coding and robotics to even our youngest learners.  In addition, the Ultimate Maker Kit Plus from Maker Maven will provide two sets of ten STEAM activities including four Ozobots and two 3D Printing Pens. This kit contains low, medium, and high tech activities for students that will be able to be used many times over.  A Lego wall will be added to allow students to create and build vertically. Four Samsung Chromebook 3 devices will be purchased for coding and research in the planning, design and construction of projects in the lab. I will also need to purchase storage tubs for activities and supplies.  Finally, tables and chairs that lend themselves to teamwork, focus, choice, and comfort will be added.

Back Up Plan

If we do not reach our goal I will purchase one set each of the KIBO 21 Robotics Kit and the Ultimate Maker Kit.  If there is money left from these purchases I will purchase as many Chromebooks as I can. In the event the goal is not met, I will hold off on additional robotics kits and Maker sets, the Lego wall, and new furniture.
