  • My Class Needs arduino kits to learn hands-on technology skills

    STEM Education with Arduinos Classroom Project at Semiahmoo Secondary
    Launched July 20th, 2017 Project Deadline December 17th, 2017
    Classroom Size 30 Students School Size 1500 Students

    My Students

    Students from grade 8-12 will benefit from having hands on experiential learning with versatile technology which will allow them to explore projects of their own design to solve problems which they personally identify and analyse. The use of Arduino kits allows students to explore programming, electrical components, robotics, and engineering.

    How will this project impact them?

    STEM projects allow students to select, explore, develop, test, refine, and innovate challenges selected by the student. Projects can range from explorations into basic electrical components to complex systems which can monitor and adjust environmental conditions. Students will identify and select challenges to solve while learning about programming, electrical components, engineering, and robotics skills. Short-term goals include student projects to aid their understanding of STEM concepts. Long-term goals aim to build students' problem solving abilities with real-life hands-on challenges. Your donation will help to create technical and practical knowledge for youth who are will live in a complex, technology-driven future.

    * Fulfillment Materials: This covers the physical costs of processing teacher and student thank-you letters and pictures, including printing, postage, labels, envelopes, cover sheets, etc.

    ** 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.

    *** Optional Donation: An optional donation to support MyClassNeeds which is calculated at 15% of the project’s price tag. 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.
