My Students

My students are high-achieving students at a Title l school (100% free/reduced-price lunch) They are eager to learn and work hard. Many are second language learners. They want to show what they know and shine. Many students will show in the regional (SARSEF) and AZ state (AzSEF) science and engineering festivals. Some receive awards and recognition every year.

It's hard to learn when you don't have all the equipment you need.

We have iPads, which we treat like our own babies. My students have great ideas and will be future leaders in the community. We work best when we can collaborate with each other.

My Project

The earbuds will allow us to work on different projects. The wraps will keep us organized and prevent wires from wearing down. The chargers and cords will replace old, broken equipment and allow us to stay functional. The stylus will enable us to interact better and allow our creativity to explode on the screen.

Unleash our creativity and let us maximize the power of technology.

Harnassing the power of the iPads will allow us to think out of the box. The ability to creatively approach learning will provide us with tech-savvy skills for the modern world. These tools are essential to keeping us as productive as possible.
