My Students

My students are from a low economic school in a suburb outside of Pittsburgh. They thrive on one-on-one or small group attention to help review or gain understanding of skills. We have a very small school population so we are able to achieve this.

Engagement is a key to success.

If students are engaged and an active participant, they learn better. My students love being a part of their learning. While some of them do have difficult home lives, we can give them the attention they need to help unlock their full potential.

My Project

These paper circuit starter kits will allow the students to collaborate and problem solve on projects during our electricity unit. They will start with looking at projects in the included Ebook. Once they are familiar with the materials then the opportunities are endless.

Student collaboration will be paramount in the use of these materials.

My students love creating and engineering. This will be a great addition to our electricity unit. These materials will not only be beneficial in science, but across other areas of the curriculum. They are only limited by their own creativity. These materials will prove to be electrifying fun!
