My Students

My students come from rural communities, with little exposure to automation and robotics. The students I work with are bright and eager to learn. Today's workforce is requiring its employees to have experience and background knowledge in the skills attained from STEM opportunities. The tools needed to teach these skills are ever-changing and need to be updated and maintained.

Students must have the skills necessary to compete in a global workforce.

By exposing students to programming and electronics, I'm hoping to spark interest in engineering and science careers.

My Project

Arduino will expose students to programming language similar to C+. Students will able to also assemble and experiment with simple, DC components. Students can create simple to complex circuitry, in conjunction with the Arduino platform.

Our classroom greatly needs more Arduino supplies.

We currently have four, which the teacher received through an RET grant. Due to the popularity and effectiveness of these tools, four just simply is not enough. Our CTE Advisory Board has recommended that increase exposure to the skills acquired through lessons focusing on robotics and automation. Any help towards this project would be greatly appreciated by the students!
