My Students

This eclectic group of students in grades 9-12 range from students who are serious about becoming programmers to those who want to explore it as a possibility. Others just know they enjoy me as a teacher or computers in general and take the risk to jump in and discover what computer science has to offer. There are both males and females (although we want to increase this number). There is also diversity in ethnicity. Our town is home to the University which brings professors from all over the world with their own children who join this class. There are ELL (English Language Learners), special education, and students in poverty as well as those who come from families who have highly educated and wealthy parents.

My Project

Student are learning to code on the computer, but currently do not have a "real-life" application to the code they are writing. To see their code come to life will be motivating, exciting and fun. We would love to integrate these robots into our curriculum this year. We currently have professionals in the IT field volunteering their time to come help teach this course and work with students to give them a good start in learning about computer science. This would be a great addition to our work and allow students to move forward in this world where technology has become so an integral part. Help our students explore this highly demanded and satisfying career option to become more than just consumers of technology but creators. Help them combat coding with an Edison Robot.
