Weʼre raising £4,000 to provide STEM educational equipment, electronics and learning resources for our local KS1-KS2 primary schools in Brackley.
- Brackley, UK
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We have super inclusive community primary schools including an infant school and the Brackley library in and around Brackley of rural South Northamptonshire and we have a mission; I see it as our duty as educators, parents and community to see that our pupils develop practical creative science, technology, engineering, mathematics and hands-on design skills.
I am committed and proactive to inject and boost modern learning through the latest STEM education incentives. As a STEM Ambassador for schools in Brackley, my vision, passion and commitment are to provide the latest digital science and technology curriculum learning tools with hands-on experiences and skills to inspire all.
The crowdfunding programme along with pledges and sponsorships is to focus on delivering electronics equipment, robotics, BBC micro:bits, python coding resources and practical STEM learning resources combining developing listening skills, outdoor survival engineering and collaboration for ages 6-7 and
7-11 through KS1-KS2 year groups.
Key areas of the mission;
BBC micro:bits through the micro:bit Educational Foundation.
Coding literature resources, STEM books for schools including the Brackley library.
Skills Supply (Drone Coding and Outdoor Survival Engineering).
To recap; our goal is to raise a maximum target £4,000 across all local KS1-KS2 catchment areas and allocate suitable equal of capitals to the school including the Brackley library, however administrated through the crowdfunding school committee and instructed by myself, the Youth Programme Coordinator and the Communications and Logistics Support Officer from the micro:bit Educational Foundation.
Why the purpose of this project?
I have seen our local schools unfortunately with no or very limited resources of STEM projects and digital learning. Many KS1-KS2 schools have no active STEM education in place due to lack of resources, funds, time and confidence which is why I have intervened to be proactive in my skills, digital knowledge and being in ICT industry. My end mission result is to make sure every local KS1-KS2 school is highly active in STEM learning to establish an excellent school ethos education to provide opportunities within a broad and balanced academic curriculum.
We would like to kindly please ask if you want to sponsor, contribute, support or donate what you can. Help us to give the opportunity to provide the resources the children need to enable modern learning in this digital world with competence and confidence.
