My Students

Our students choose to attend our school because it is a STEM school offering a diverse program in the arts as well including robust programs in drama, forensics, visual arts. We have an exceptional student body in that most thrive in cooperative group settings where the product is far greater than the sum of its parts. Each student brings a unique wealth of talents and struggles including endearing personalities, energies, and social flare.

Our school serves students from an urban area (500,000 people in our city) attending the third largest school district in California.

68% of our students qualify for free and reduced lunch. We are very ethnically diverse and we are located in a neighborhood that shows evidence of the increase in societal struggles that accompany poverty.

My Project

Students come together to explore coding using the fantastic curriculum of and They wrestle with the logical arguments and see dynamically how the lines of code that they are writing impact the functionality of the program. Providing a stable platform will allow them to bypass the frustration and occasional obstacle of the device not functioning well enough to load the curriculum and allow adaptation.

A Surface Pro 4 will allow students who don't have the resources to explore the world of coding to develop logical thought processes used across the many fields of STEM.

This will attract students who may be on the fringe of coding to be welcomed in to an entire new realm of possibilities and opportunities.
