Foundation Awards $9,548 for Coding in 3rd Grade

The Methacton Education Foundation is pleased to award $9,548.48 for Third Grade Coding across all 4 Elementary Schools in Methacton School District.

Thanks to forward thinking science teacher, Mrs. Darlene Balaguer-Piernock, who filed this application.  The district will be able to purchase one classroom set of Ozobot EVO Coding Robots for each elementary school: Arrowhead, Eagleville, Woodland, and Worcester reaching 400 students each year.

Reinforcing the basic tenets of STEM, the Ozobots will give students experience in problem solving, creativity, critical thinking and cooperative learning.
