My Students

Students at my school are inquisitive, and creative. They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. As children of the 21st century, they need to be prepared to use a variety of tools to engage their world.

My Project

In this project the middle school students will be using the FlashForge 3D printer and accompanying filament to design crash helmets. This project uses the applied physics concepts consisting of linear kinematics, Newton’s Laws, impulse, and elastic/inelastic collisions, teaching the core areas of each concept. These concepts are best learned in a hands on manner. Additionally, students utilize empathizing, defining, ideating, prototyping, testing and working collaboratively, in order to produce crash helmets for the purpose of protecting users from traumatic brain injury, using an egg to simulate a human head
