My Students

My students are very enthusiastic about science and technology. They are a bright group of learners.

My students are engaged and ready to learn.

My school is a Title I school. I have a range of students from those who need extra help to students that are advanced.

My fourth graders love to work together and collaborate with other students. They are very excited about learning about engineering, science, and technology. They are always asking when are we going to do our next science experiment.

My Project

Our class loves Science Technology Education Mathematics (STEM) and is interested in Lego Robots. The Mindstorm Educational Kit would be a great addition to our technology in the classroom.

My students could learn to code and complete Robot missions.

Access to this technology with help my students develop 21st century schools and extend their learning. STEM activities in the classroom could also spark an interest in STEM careers. Students might also become involved in our school Robotics team. This kit would give them access to the most current robots in FLL.

I would love to see my students become more interested in Science, Engineering, or even computer programming.
