My Students

"That was the best feeling I've ever had." These words were spoken by a 5th grade student after completing a model of a roller coaster made from only paper and tape. Weeks of hard work and trial and error went into the project. Our program serves over 70 students who have a demonstrated educational need for gifted enrichment. They come from diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds and work together on projects across all academic areas.

Our program is needs based, so all students who qualify are able to attend.

No one is turned away due to a lack of space or funding. IGNITE students require additional depth and complexity in their educational program. They attend class for 2-3 hours per week and benefit from project based learning activities.

My Project

The LEGO Mindstorms will provide an excellent platform for science learning. Students in the IGNITE program will design and program models that model reality and conduct investigation. The curriculum covers life, physical, earth, and space sciences, and is built on Next Generation Science Standards. The packs will serve students across several grades.

The donations to this project will help to improve my students' understanding of computational thinking skills.

The kits contain everything we will need for over 40 hours of instruction. These activities will provide a foundation for programing that can lead to future activities in Junior Lego League, Robotics, and careers in STEM related fields.
