Arduino kits for high school students

Hello everybody, 

I am a high school teacher trying my best to provide unique and innovative learning opportunities for students to learn computational thinking and theory that are not only effective but fun at the same time!  I'm very passionate about allowing the students to try new things that may spark their interest in this field so that is why I would love to introduce Arduino into our computer science courses at John G. Diefenbaker high school. 
The Arduino platform  provides  unique learning opportunities to students of all abilities leaving no learner behind. Furthermore, with its hands-on circuit building projects students develop both tactile and theoretical knowledge skills that have real world applicability.  Real world skills students can take with them into their professional and personal lives long after high school. 
With the recent education budget laid out  by the new Alberta government schools have frozen all spending on programs and supplies that are not mandatory to the current program of studies.  Therefore, I am asking you to provide a small donation to help me and my colleagues bring this amazing platform to our students. 

What we hope to provide to our students:

1)45 - 60 Arduino Kits

2)  Jewelry/organizer boxes to help with inventory and organization
