My Students

My students are intelligent typical fifth graders. They are social, active, and fun to be around. My students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds. I have students who are below grade level, on grade level, and above grade level.

I am constantly reminding my students that we are not robots and that we all learn in a uniquely personal way.

My students are mini inspirations to themselves and others around them, even if they don't know it yet.

My Project

During our fifth grade year, we proudly get to go to Star Base for a field trip. Star Base is located on the base with the Montana Air National Guard (MANG). Star base is a week-long field trip of science, technology, engineering, art, and math exploration. The instructors will give my students an exciting, hands-on introduction to electronics with Electronics Snap Circuits. Working with snap circuits is very exciting for the students, and they are learning real-world application. These kits are so engaging that I would like to have them onsite at the school.

The kits that I am trying to get funded are not as tremendous as the ones on base at the Star Base program, but they contain over 60 color-coded, real circuit components that snap together to create working electronic circuits and devices.

This set offers 305 do-it-yourself projects that will give fifth graders an entertaining, concrete education on how electronics work.
