   Supporting Innovation In Education 

Farallone View teacher, Leah Murray, felt inspired to give her 4th grade students a unique opportunity to explore computer science. Through a $1,000 Innovation Grant from CEF she purchased a set of Ozobots for her classroom; the learning that ensued was greater than she ever imagined.

Ozobots are miniature robots that respond to colors and patterns drawn by the students on paper, allowing them to develop the concept of coding even before getting to a computer. Leah found that her students jumped right in and started exploring, building and collaborating right away. When she invited me to visit the classroom, every single student’s engagement and sense of pride was apparent. Students not only were writing code to solve problems Leah put up on the board but they were using the Ozobots to activate wacky machines they built together.

This is one example of how CEF is working hard to support all the students and teachers in the Cabrillo Unified School District. The next round of Innovation Grant proposals are due April 1st and we still have 11 left to award this year. Cabrillo Education Foundation (CEF) is awarding $1,000 Faculty/Student Innovation Grants designed to inspire out-of-the-box approaches to student success.
