    My Students

    We are a small rural school of 72 students from grade 7-12. Our school runs a flex model that allows for students to have 2 hours a week of set passion learning. Our students have shown a great desire to seek more knowledge and skills in coding outside of our courses. As they wish to pursue coding as their passion we are in need of technology to help them in this endeavor.

    How will this project impact them?

    Students will technology to build a variety of robots and code them. They will complete a series of challenges using the robots and also work with them in open ended freestyle building. We will have a passion block makerspace club as well to allow more students to learn coding. The short term benefits would include the ability for all students to participate fully, solve problems and be successful with the support of each other and the teacher. Long term benefits include learning to code, logistics, developing critical thinking and creative skills.
