I teach a semester class. However, several of my 7th and 8th grade students were motivated to accomplish all of the units and supported each other through to the use of the playground.
Learning is it’s own reward, as evidenced by their enthusiasm. But, They are leaving my class on Monday. I’d like to foster their enthusiasm but offering their own circuit playground, so they can continue without me.
AND, I’d like to find further courses for their development outside of the school setting.
I am working at the district level to encourage further code.org use of CSP at the High School, but that won’t happen in time for these students.
Question 1) If I supply them with Adafruit circuit playgrounds from their site, those will work, right?
Question 2) What summer opportunities would you recommend for rural students?
