  • My Class Needs Spheros to become master programmers!

    Launched July 2nd, 2017 Project Deadline January 10th, 2018
    Classroom Size 60 Students School Size 460 Students

    My Students

    I teach Applied Design Skills and Technologies to two exploratory classes at our school. We have a large percentage of students from low-income families, refugees, and new immigrants. The students love learning to program and using the two spheros we currently have in our makerspace.

    How will this project impact them?

    Students are really enjoying programing the spheros, but we currently only have two in our school. We have to borrow some from our Learning Services, but we won't have those available to us next year. We would really like to have access to more than two spheros so students can learn to code with them and race them down our long hallway.

    ** Payment Processing Fee: An average of fees charged to MyClassNeeds for processing donations (e.g. credit card payments through a secure server). We have worked hard to select the most secure option for the cost.

The optional contribution supports the work we do to engage teachers, build awareness, and to generally run MyClassNeeds. To do that we need a world- class website supported by strong business systems and processes that improve over time.
