My Students

Brighton High School has roughly 575 students where 100% of the population receives free lunch, 10% are homeless, 30% are English as a Second Language learners, and 30% are students with disabilities. As a public high school, we are pushing to focusing on a MADE (Media, Arts, Design, and Entrepreneurship) for Social Justice pathway. Brighton High has difficulty gaining enough technology and tools needed for students to gain 21st century skills and to make them marketable for college/future employment while pushing our Project Based Learning style of teaching.

As a school, we are pushing our students to analyze social justice situations within their communities and use those MADE pathways to address them.

As a teacher within the school, teachers and students need access to resources like 3D printers, laser cutters, computer technologies, and low tech solutions so that students can push themselves to begin gaining skills for future employment, take control of their own learning, and address social justice disparities through various mediums.

My Project

Students will have access to a room for class and after school activities that allow them to create rough drafts using software like TinkerCAD and Google Draw then render those ideas into the 3d printers and laser cutters. They could use those mock designs to present ideas or create parts for their projects. The STEM club wishes to create a aquaponics herb garden using a rasberry pi and 3d printer parts to create the project to create a self contained garden for the life skills classroom in the school that teaches cooking skills. Other students have voiced the idea to use NASA patents to create technologies to help people with disabilities.
