|School:||Middle School in New Hampshire|
|Number of Students:||30|
|Program Description:||This Middle School STEM Program has all the resources to run a fantastic program that would provide opportunities for the kids in the his 8th grade class to learn robotics and coding with CoderZ. However the school is underfunded and the ability to get access to funds for the curriculum, application software or robotic hardware does not exist. With a program donation of just $2500, the school could use CoderZ with the class and enable the students to have access to virtual robotics, programming tools and a full virtual curriculum with robotic simulation.|
