PAC Donates $1,000 to PAC Makerspace

Julie Harrison and Amanda Tendal of Pocahontas Community Hospital recently visited the PAC Makerspace to deliver PCH's $1,000 donation for the purchase of a Ozobot Evo Classroom Kit for PAC Makerspace. 
Ozobots introduce kids to coding and, at the same time, teach skills such as deductive reasoning while expanding their imaginations.
Children learn how to channel their ideas into reality, creating private games, secret codes and their very own robotic equations, putting them at the forefront of learning without even realizing it.
You can control Ozobot with color markers by drawing lines and codes for it to explore. Connecting to the tiny robot like a new friend, kids of all ages will mold their own state of play, one line at a time.
The Ozobots are a great way to get kids excited about coding - which fosters deeper thinking, problem-solving, and communication and collaboration. All vital 21st Century skills needed in today's world.
Susan Oehlertz, PAC Technology Integrationist Specialist stated, "I'm excited to bring the Ozobots into the Makerspace as well as several curricular classrooms throughout the year. Thank You Pocahontas Community Hospital for bringing this opportunity to our students! Your generous donation is very much appreciated!"
