My Students

I am fortunate enough to be able to pilot a STEM program and create a innovation center for 350 elementary school students. I see my students on a weekly basis and almost every week my students leave the room saying "I can't wait for next week." I have students come from many different cultures and each one brings their own unique background to our learning. I feel that as a STEM teacher, my job is to prepare my students for the world that they are about to enter. Studies say that our students will have jobs that haven't even been created yet, and it is my responsibility to provide them with the skills that they will need to succeed.

My Project

These materials will give my students hands-on exposure to coding and programming at a young age. Using the Kano Kit, students will be able to see and understand the functions of every single part of a computer. They will then be able to assemble the computer themselves. Once the computer is put together, students will be able to program and code using dozens of apps. Students use computers every day in our school and this is an excellent way to provide exposure on how computers work.

While using the Sphero robot balls, students will be able to program the robots to follow commands and sequences.

This will provide them with the knowledge of how computers around us work.
