Much to my surprise as I read my email this morning, I learned that the Coding Project I submitted about a week ago with DonorsChoose.org has been fully funded by two donors. I am super excited and can’t wait to get the Sphero robots in the hands of the kids. I know that watching them program a tangible object will help bring the world of programming and coding to life. We participated in The Hour of Code global event in December 2015 and practiced more coding since then through the code.org website.
A HUGE and HEARTFELT THANK YOU to my anonymous donor and to News Corp for the match. You have made it possible to show how coding works with an object students can touch and to control that object without touching it. Coding enforces math and language skills, the educational basis for a promising future. My infinite thanks to both my donors!
