My Students

In our elementary school, we have approximately 800 students, not including those in Head Start programs. Of that population, 78% of them are designated as economically disadvantaged; 2% are ELL, .51% as gifted, and 17% are special education. Our gender population is about 52% male and 48% female. Enrollment based on ethnicity- 51% African American, 22% Hispanic, 18% white, nearly 8% multi-racial, and less than one percent is either American Indian or Asian.

They are eager for more opportunities to explore and create but just need more resources.

My Project

Our elementary school is starting a Makerspace this year. Yet, we received no budget funds to begin buying materials. There are many kids eager to learn and apply coding and work with robots. This kit is a great start. A bonus is that this kit is screen free so it is truly hands on. The students will have basic lessons on how to use the equipment but will be given multiple opportunities to work in partners or small groups to work with the kit. They will use trial and error to learn how to build obstacle courses and solve puzzles.

This helps my students build critical thinking skills in a fun, cooperative environment.
