My Students

My students love hands on activities and seeing science in action! Whether it is demos or labs, students enjoy learning about science so much more when they are doing the science. There is a difference between learning about the science and actually being a scientist.

We have a large population of low income families, giving us a high rate of free and reduced price lunch.

We also have a large population of EL learners, which makes differentiated learning all the more important. With such a high need from our students, laboratory experience and hands on learning is an excellent way to enrich their education.

I am teaching a new course this year, Principles of STEM, and this course is meant to provide students with hands on experience in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. From programming to engineering, my students are eager to learn and ready to apply what they know.

My Project

My students will be engineering several projects out of wood during our Engineering unit in our Principles of STEM class. This electric brad nail gun will allow the students to reinforce their projects with nails.

This nail gun will be used to reinforce the STEM projects, making the wood projects look more professional and durable.

Students have tried to build some of these projects in the past, but have had to change their designs because of the lack of some type of fastener. This nail gun will be an essential resource year after year to sustain our woodworking project during our Engineering unit in STEM.
