The program provides equipment, software, curriculum and professional development to elementary and middle school educators (K-8) to enable them to teach their students to write computer code coupled with real-life applications of the engineering design process. The inquiry-based program focuses on discrete programming skills and engineering design concepts designed to improve computational thinking skills and promote mastery. The program is sustainable as schools can reuse the equipment allowing for continued participation. The focus on education (coding and engineering standards) coupled with the sustainability and the low cost of equipment,which includes activity mats, curriculum and professional development makes it easier to target all teachers and not just the STEM, gifted or technology teachers that traditionally participate in these types of activities.
