Charging Up Their Brain!

Help me give my students a station to charge their phones so they aren't distracted with them during class!

My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful, and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!

Most of these students come from low economic households, so these projects are very beneficial to them.

My Project

I am in a constant battle of trying to make students put away their phones. I tried and tried to come up with some kind of incentive so that they wouldn't always be on their phone during class. One day, I went to unplug my iPad from the front of the room and one student (who is usually on their phone) said, "Could you plug my phone up?" BOOM. The idea was born.

With a charging station, students will be rewarded with a fully charged phone at the end of class and I will be rewarded with no one on their phones during class!

It's a win win for everyone. Help me give my students everything they need for a charging station!
