Empowering Students: Coding School Rovers to Plot Shapes

Aug 22, 2023 | Grants, Our Stories

Woodstone Elementary School’s 5th-grade math teacher, Nancy Salinas, bought 30 TI-Nspire Graphing Calculators and TI-Innovator Rovers with a $12,605 NEEF grant. Using the calculators, students enter code to automate the robot to draw a two-dimensional shape on paper. “This will help the students to connect their understanding of higher-level science and math into their learning.”

Experiential learning grants from the NEEF have proven beneficial for SPED and English as a second language learning students at Title 1 schools such as Woodstone Elementary.

NEEF is grateful for NEISD teachers’ efforts to expand upon traditional teaching to bring new ideas that further students’ academic success. Our foundation funds these innovations through grants thanks to donors like you.
