My students are curious and creative and are always looking for ways to explore their world and solve problems. We use a thoughtful and current curriculum to guide them through a variety of hands-on projects that allow them to explore a variety of interests and give them the opportunity to continually evaluate and improve their work.
Once set to the task, students always rise to the occasion.
Our class is not only about the end product, but more importantly the path we take to get there. Teamwork and planning become the norm and my students always know that the best resource they have for any problems are each other.
All of our elementary students love to build things. In our Project Lead the Way program, they are given the opportunity to build everything from a new home for the three little pigs to a robot than autonomously moves hazardous elements around a disaster area. As their understanding grows, so do the number of parts involved with their building.
The mobile parts bin will allow students to work with an ever-changing and ever-growing collection of materials to help them develop and build projects from the comfort of their own classroom.
We are a K-12 school that, by necessity, needs to share many of its resources. Our single lab is located in the HS/MS wing of the building, requiring not scheduling issues, but also storage issues for projects in their various stages of completion. A dedicated elementary mobile parts unit would help greatly to solve this problem and bring the needed materials directly to the student's front door.
