UPDATE April 2017: Mr. McKinley was awarded a grant from SRP!
Learning Grant: Grants to allow schools, teachers, and students to develop projects and programs geared toward state-mandated competencies. Funds can be used to support innovative teaching strategies that improve student performance objectives in math and science.
He will use the award to acquire 6 Chromebooks, a charging cart, and Little Bits STEAM kits for students to learning not only electronics and circuitry but to create an electronic musical instrument.
UPDATE December 2016: Mr. McKinley also was awarded a grant from the Madison Education Foundation for 3 more Android tablets to help students with various music education projects! You will see and hear the results in May!
UPDATE November 22, 2016: Mr. McKinley got enough funding from the gofundme.com campaign to purchase another Android tablet! This device will come in handy with the third and fourth graders for the start of their EDM group projects later this year.
UPDATE October 7, 2016: Mr. McKinley got fully funded for the two Android tablets! He will be using them with the third and fourth grades very soon and will be posting their projects on the site when they are completed. Thank you to all that helped spread the word and donated to Donor's Choose.
