My Students

My students are fantastic! As the library media specialist, I am able to see all the students in our school.

We have 1,300 public elementary school library students within PreK through 4th Grade and are the largest elementary school in the state of Alabama!

Wow!

Our students come from working class homes and from a variety of cultural backgrounds, specifically African-American, Caucasian, and Hispanic. Many of our families are high poverty. Our students love to learn and we are proud of their accomplishments!

My Project

This project brings STEM materials and instruction (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) to our students. Cubelets are magnetic blocks that you can snap together to make an endless variety of robots with no programming and no wires. Cubelet-based robots can drive around on a tabletop, respond to light, sound, and temperature, and have surprisingly lifelike behavior. Cubelets robot blocks enable all sorts of robot construction and learning opportunities.

Having this resource will allow our students to think critically and creatively as they collaborate with peers regarding the designs of various robots.

Cubelets will excite our students and will engage them in problem-solving and logical thinking skills. Help us bring these to our school!
