My Students

I teach two blocks of Math and Science students, for a total of fifty students. Students in my class come from all over the world such as America, China, Spain, Mexico, Korea, and Russia, making our class a diverse group of kids. What do all these children have in common? Engineering!

Every student, regardless of academic level or background, are thoroughly engaged and learning during STEM challenges.

Students eagerly wait for the "challenge" to be given and then start the design process of planning, building, testing, and collecting data.

My Project

Students work through the Design Challenge to solve problems. A very big problem we're facing is running out of fossil fuels, a nonrenewable resource.

Students will be challenged to build a vehicle that runs on a renewable resource, solar energy.

Students will plan their vehicle design using a solar panel and motor. Optional materials may be used if they are labeled in their blueprints such as base, wheels, gears, etc.

Once final blueprints and prototypes are complete, students will have the opportunity to test and improve their solar powered vehicles before participating in a class competition testing each vehicle's distance.
