Our students are creative and curious. A majority of our students are Native American or Hispanic. They share their languages and cultures with others in the school. Nearly all of our students come from a lower socioeconomic background. They come to school with diverse perspectives. Our students display high levels of perseverance and resilience. They use their perspectives and skills when asked to complete problem-solving activities.
Through problem-based learning, they are connecting what they discover at school to the world around them.
They present their ideas for projects and grant proposals to others in our school and the broader community. Our students are working toward breaking the cycle of poverty in their families and our community. They are full of potential and have so much to share.
Our students will create and explore with the laptops and 3d printer provided through this grant. Students will write code to control robots such as the LEGO EV3 and WeDo used for FIRST LEGO League robotics.
Students will engage in the engineering design process and see how they can use mistakes as learning opportunities.
Students will experiment with design software to bring project ideas to life with a 3D printer.
They will connect their efforts to the work of individuals in different industries to create prototypes to explain their ideas. They will be able to use their prototypes to share their ideas with community members and assist in improving our school and community.
