Our Magic Bus Is Bringing Chromebooks to Schools!

Computers in the Classroom are Fun!
Computers in the Classroom are Fun!

Beep, Beep!  Our Magic School Bus is not only bringing books to our partner schools, we are now bringing chromebooks! The Kenyan Competency Based Curriculum includes basic computer skills such as how to turn on a computer and use a mouse, wordprocessing, and how to access the internet in grade 4. In grade 5, the students are supposed to learn coding. However, all of our partner schools are without computers.

Thanks to a grant from Team4Tech, we are now bringing 40 chromebooks to four of our partner schools in a new computer pilot program. Just imagine students getting to use their own computer in their classroom. For almost all of the students, it's the first time they have ever used a computer by themselves. The teachers are thrilled since it was challenging to teach computing from a textbook. As part of our work to make it sustainable, we are also training the teachers so they can also instruct the teachers.  

Patrick Munguti, Director of Technology said, "The students are so joyful when they are using the computers! When it is time to leave, they ask us to stay longer! Other students from the schools are so interested, they watch outside the window to see the class in progress!"

This program is an addition to our daily computer enrichment classes at the Learning Resource Center. We have also begun to teach robotics and the students are amazed when they can make their lego car or robot move!

We are grateful to donors like you who have supported our work so generously. These programs are making a difference for rural Kenyan students and we couldn't do it without you.

We will keep you updated as this program progresses and grows!
