This is an iX18 project that will serve two classes in introducing the students to block coding and javascript. We are requesting two class sets of Microbits and accessories. We feel coding is a foundational skill for the future.

We recently have been exposing our classes to block coding and javascript through these amazing and affordable tools called Microbits.  The kids use the programming language to make these incredible bits respond to the codes that they write.   They use creativity and ingenuity to make projects that can be shared with the world.

We would like to use the money to buy class sets (50 in total) of Microbits for both of our classes, as well as proper storage containers and accessories such as alligator clips. 

Please help enable us to bring Microbits into our classroom, to engage and build the foundational skill of coding.

Thank you for considering our project.  We would love to be able to bring this into our classrooms.
