We are raising funds for our Jackson Kids Code 2018 Camp. The money that we are raising goes to two main purposes: First, it offsets the cost of participation for low-income students and families. We never turn students away due to ability to pay. We believe every child deserves access to opportunities, regardless of their income or zip code.

Second, the funds would help us purchase additional technology to ensure that students can maximize their hands-on experience with software and hardware. We would be able to use this technology to do future school year workshops, weekend workshops, and summer camps.

 

 

40 students x $30 of materials per student = $1,200

40 students x 5 days of snacks ($2.50/student/day)= $500

$30 materials per student break down: $15- 1/2 of an Arduino Kit (we use 1 for every 2 students) $15- parts for robots and additional circuit parts for Arduino kits

What does my money go towards?
It will go first to buying Arduino Uno kits, second to purchasing additional robots, third to purchasing additional wires and hardware supplies that students need, and fourth to snacks and other materials to support students and make them comfortable at camp, and any remaining funds will be put forward to support weekend and semester programming throughout the school year.
