Teacher Name: Maxcy Dimmick
School: Jarrett Middle School
Grade Level: Gateway to Technology/6-8
Description: Using Raspberry Pi processors and peripherals, students will learn how to program and configure hardware and software so that they can send messages in code, analyze, collect, and display weather data, and create games and puzzles.
Planned Use for Funds: I plan to by 6 each of Raspberry Pi 3 processor kits, cameras, sense hats, and storage cards. My prices are from Amazon.com
Need Represented: Springfield, MO, has more programming and IT jobs than it can fill. Students need to be exposed to programming at an early age in an engaging way so that they can visualize themselves in a programming career.
Academic Impact: Students will use reasoning skills, collaboration skills, and creativity to produce their own unique solutions to real-world problems.
Student Population: The student population at Jarrett is 6-8 grade students with approximately 70% free and reduced lunch and approximately 20-25% minority students.
