Howdy! I’ve developed an account on GoFundMe.com to raise money ($2,300) for the class in hopes that we can acquire some more Lego Mindstorms EV3 sets. The sets individually are about $400. If we buy them in a set of 8, it brings the price down considerably to about $265. I have also built in $200 to the cost for shipping and handling as they are quite big and shipping is not cheap!
Currently, we have 2 EV3 sets and 4 NXT sets. We are hoping to get enough donations to allow us to purchase 8 new EV3 sets. These sets will bring down the ratio to less than 1 set between 2 students. The students in our classroom deserve the opportunity to have as many hands on experiences as possible. They have the minds, now lets give tools to stretch those minds! Parents, if you feel compelled in any way to donate, please feel free. I know that money is tight for everyone, so if you have a rich relative who just happens to have more money than they know what to do with, have them throw a little cash towards the education of our little engineers!
