The 2011 Teach With Africa team departs for South Africa this weekend!


As the 2011 Teaching Team departs for South Africa this weekend, we are asking for your help with a great send-off!

We are looking for 10  donors to donate $100 each (or feel free to donate anyamount toward one!) to purchase 10 robots for Faculty-in-Residence EugeneLemon’s computer science workshops this summer at the LEAP Schools.

You can check out the robots here.

These robots can be programmed using Java or Python programming languages,which fits into LEAP’s Java programming curriculum. The developers also planto have Scratch (programming language designed to teach programming toprimary and middle school students) added to the programming languagessometime this summer, which our teachers can then use in the LEAP Schools’primary and middle school partners. There will be approx. 3 to 4 studentsper robot in each LEAP Computer Science class.

The programming robots would be a motivating addition to the LEAP Schools’computer science curriculum, and we are really excited to be bringing themto LEAP this year!

To donate, go to our site’s donate page — and donate via PayPal, designate your donation for “robots” and/or send an emailto to let us know you have donated and want itto go toward the robot project.

Many thanks for your support!
