My Students

I have the fortune of working with some very self-motivated students this year. Before teaching engineering courses, students had to keep up with me. Now the coin has flipped and I'm running as fast as I can to keep up with my kiddos. Their drive to keep improving their engineering projects amazes me. They do not look at a newly assigned project and sigh. They simply dive right in.

Our students have various challenges at our campus including, but not limited to living in a low income area, learning English as a second language, and regularly moving schools being in a military family.

Being low income, they're used to not having what everyone else has, but I want to change that for them. Language barriers will not stop them from wanting to learn. Feeling that they are constantly moving from one new place to another will not stop them from chasing their dreams. Help me provide them with the materials they want to be successful.

My Project

Generally coding is introduced as a tool that can teach students how to build digital worlds. However, coding can be used to develop tools that can also impact our physical world.

Using the Microbit devices, students will have an opportunity to combine their coding experience with their engineering skills, and construct devices that could change our world.

Students will also have opportunities to share their devices with not only the classroom, but the community. The tasks assigned to them will include challenges on our campus and in our community. They will complete this school year with the knowledge that they have the power to make a difference with a little bit of skill and a lot of hard work!
