Purchase a Hackaball for Mrs. VanStratt's Class
Organized by: Meghan Zammit
Hi there, I have a daughter in Mrs. VanStratt's third grade class. I would love to raise money to provide this to her entire class. Original price was $70 but they are expected to be a little higher with first pre-order bacth. I have already applied for 1 via pre-order. If we're are able to raise enough to purchase more than one it would be gifted to Central Grade School for teachers to share. Thank you for your consideration. "Hackaball is a smart and responsive ball that lets kids invent and play games. The only computer you can throw." "It's a computer in a ball that kids can program using an iPad, and then throw it around, bounce it off walls and kick it about in completely made up games. Kids get their programming hands dirty by creating games using a free iPad app. The app has a number of games already loaded and ready for wireless transfer to the Hackaball, but also includes locked features and "broken" games that children will need to unlock or fix before they can play, teaching them the basic principles of game design and programming in the process. Pint-sized programmers can choose to get creative on their own, too, and use a building block interface to create entirely new games."
