My Students

We are a Chicago Public School, our population is primarily Hispanic and low-income. We have approximately 900 students. Our students love technology and are open to trying and learning new things. Our students are currently learning to code, creating websites, and engineering.

My students are always eager to learn and love working together to conquer new technology challenges.

The hands on activities level the playing field for my diverse learners and as well as my English language learners. They love showing off the things they build.

My Project

We would like to add the Dash and Dot Robots for our primary students. They will program these robots to complete different obstacles and/or challenges.

Our students love learning new things and the Dash and Dot Robots will be a fun way for the primary students to learn programming.

Students learn a lot by engaging in hands-on activities; it increases interest in the subject and they like figuring things out on their own.

These materials will make a difference by helping students to increase programming skills and take pride in their work. Diverse learners will also be able to participate.
