My Students

"The science of today is the technology of tomorrow."

-- Edward Teller

My classroom holds a buzz of activity and is focused on giving kids the opportunities that they may not get elsewhere. Each of the students in my class is a vibrant, excited learner who looks for the next opportunity to gain knowledge.

Each child in my classroom is a unique learner who comes to school each day ready to achieve at the highest levels. As a teacher, it is my job to encourage the students to explore paths that they show a marked interest in. I also see it as my job to show my students that learning can be magical.

My Project

These Hummingbird Bits Robotic kits will be used to inspire deep learning. Students will use lights, sensors, and motors to build robots out of any material. They will be able to animate a poem, model the human arm, build an autonomous rover, or create a pinball machine. These kits will allow us to do a multitude of deep thinking projects.

The Hummingbird Bits Robotic kit uses a low floor, high ceiling approach to teaching robotics.

This means that this product is good for beginners as well as advanced learners. Robots can be built and programmed in minutes and advanced engineering and programming can also be obtained using the same supplies. This kit will be meet the needs of all the different levels represented in my classroom.
