My Students

My 5th grade students are amazing inner city kids whose families struggle in a concrete jungle, yet strive to learn as much as they can.

I have an incredible group of students who are creative and eager to learn despite the inner city woes that plague the neighborhood.

Many of my students are recent immigrants who are working hard to master the English language. They have so many questions about their world and are eager to discover its mysteries. They are trying to make sense of the world around them.

My Project

My budding engineers are eager and ready to start building. They are dying to design the next gadget or gizmo, but we have an empty Maker Space Cart.

We need Maker Space Hardware Pack, Craft Boxes Pack, Foam Shapes Pack, Wooden Dowels Pack, Plastic Tubing Pack, Fasteners Pack, Space Gears, Spools Pack, and Wire Pack so we can build things for a better future.

We have so many ideas. We want to build our own arcade, but we need materials to build them. Help us fill our maker space cart so we can empty our brains of the incredible games, gadgets and gizmos we've invented.
