About this Campaign
As a second-year computer science teacher, I'm currently trying to build up my pool of tools and resources to use in the classroom. One of the greatest learning tools that I've come across is called the "Dash" robot. This robot is able to be coded via an iPad app, and does a bunch of cool things such as moving forward/backward, turning, lighting up, and making sounds.
The use of these robots would be an awesome addition to the classroom and add another layer of excitement to our coding curriculum for all grades K-5. Additionally, these robots will also be used for an after school robotics club.
I currently have one Dash robot, but the goal is to have six total. This would allow me to run small groups of four to five students with each robot and have the whole class doing the same lesson at the same time. With one, it's nearly impossible.

I really appreciate any donation that you are able to make. Requesting $750 plus cost reimbursement. Tools like Dash make learning even more exciting and fun for students of all ages.
