My Students

My students attend computer class every week during their Specials time. Our school is located in a rural, high poverty community.

My students enjoy hands-on STEM projects.

This year, they completed the Star Wars Hour of Code and had the chance to host a BB-8 robot from Vermont Robot Rodeo at the same time. This gave them the chance to see how coding relates to real life robots.

They enjoy completing hands-on projects creating Snap Circuits, such as an FM radio, a voice changer, and a hand crank light.

My Project

This summer I attended the Create Make Learn Summer Institute. The purpose of this professional development was to learn how to grow your maker mindset and encourage learning by making and creating with our students.

I learned how to code and create projects with squishy circuits, cardboard and learning kits, and now want to give the same experiences to my students.

The great thing about encouraging students to learn by creating and making, is that it honors different types of learning styles, and makes students feel they can solve problems with more than one right answer. Learning by creating and making gives students a sense of empowerment and develops the habits of mind required to solve problems.
