Our school is a Title I school that is in an at-risk and low-income neighborhood. My students come from diverse backgrounds; the majority are Hispanic or African American. A little less than half of my students are limited English proficient and exceptional education students.
Many come from single-parent households or families that are in transition.
We work very hard to overcome all of these challenges. My students have the exact same eagerness to learn science as their peers in more affluent schools. Unfortunately, the school's resources and technology are very limited.
My classroom is a place where curiosity is cultivated and creativity is fostered. My students are inquisitive learners who love learning about our world. I strive to make all lessons interesting and engaging so students become more curious about the world and crave even more knowledge. The world's greatest inventions and advancements all started with curiosity.
Students will be able to write programs to build models, turn their engineering design sketches into tangible prototypes, and create items for class assignments and competitions.
By having access to a 3D printer, my students will be able to do more than theorize.
They actually will be able to bring their creations to life. My students will be amazed at how their engineering design sketches can turn into something they can hold in their hands, which brings excitement and engagement into the classroom like never before. It will give students a glimpse into how prototypes are created in the real world and how students to learn skills that will be useful in their future careers.
