We are asking for four Piper Computer kits for our fifth-grade students at Sato Elementary School. Each kit will allow for groups of 4 to 6 students to work at a time. These four kits will serve the 108 fifth grade students at Sato, as well as future students. At Sato Elementary School, we are fortunate to serve a community that provides abundant and generous support to our staff and students. We are dedicated to providing a rigorous education for each and every child, and to fostering each student's academic growth through science and technology integration. Additionally, we are committed to creating an environment that promotes our kindergarten-fifth grade students through hands-on collaborative opportunities. We are able to utilize the diverse talents and skills of staff and families in the learning process.

This year we would love to introduce the Piper Computer Kits for our Students to experience hands-on learning and exploration through computer science, technology, and engineering activities. With the use of these tools, students will learn about the engineering design process, develop skills in robotics, collaboration, and critical thinking. The computer kits will allow students to independently lead their learning by addressing science targets in engineering. students will be assessed on their learning throughout the construction and application process. 


We are asking for $1200 to purchase 4 Piper Computer Kits ($300 ea.)

The requested materials, the Piper Computer Kits will support students' curiosity for the way technology works. They will allow more opportunities for students to engage in hands-on learning. Students will build and program a computer while applying skills in collaboration, teamwork, and problem-solving. The materials will support a deeper understanding of engineering, mathematics, coding, circuitry, and design. With the use of these tools, students can take on a more independent and engaged role in their education. These tools will allow presentations, exploration, and learning to be more accessible to all students. The Piper Computers will be available to all students and teachers in the building. This project will promote the passions and interests of the students in our building.

This project is supported by the Beaverton Education Foundation.

Founded in 1988, the Beaverton Education Foundation raises money to provide hands-on innovative academic enrichment and advancement programs & projects that go beyond normal school funding at all Beaverton public schools and is a 501(c)(3) community-based nonprofit organization. BEF mobilizes community resources to fund innovative classroom, summer and after-school programs.

In the event that this project does not reach its goal, BEF may apply the funds received to another project in need.
