My Students

My students are a special kind of human; they are Native American. These beautiful 3rd graders are Hupa, from Hoopa, CA. I am the lucky human who gets to be the teacher of these resilient, kind, and delightful children. Everyday is a new adventure in their earnest endeavors to gain knowledge. I find that they are far braver than I am when entering and conquering these STEM activities. As eight to nine year old kids, their enthusiasm for all things technology is contagious, and they lead this 60 year old teacher into the 21st Century!!

My Project

In this new technological age, our disadvantaged students need to become tech savvy to enable them to better compete against better equipped students whom have always had these tools. We as a group of people need to catch up in the way of the future; and that way is technology.

As my students succeed at making robots, they will move on into robot camps, and robot competitions, and robot clubs.

Once they make robots, next they will make their our own computers, and then they will go to Coding Camps, and grow up to write software. Like dominoes, they all fall into activities that lead them into better lives.
