The school will use the money to purchase supplies for a “tinker box”. This will include several different items to help inspire innovation, imagination, and design for the students. Items will include such things as soldering irons, small motors, magnets, gears, robot parts, Arduino microcontrollers, multimeters, and other electrical parts. The idea is to give students materials without boundaries and let them create, design, and understand how things work.
