My Students

Alas, meet the future generation of scientists, engineers, doctors, researchers, and technicians. My students come from all diverse backgrounds and are eager to learn new things in the field of science, engineering, and technology.

Located in an urban school district, these students face many difficult obstacles and challenges.

None of these things deter them from seeking out the answers to phenomena around them. They anxiously want to put their science skills to test, and inquire about the world around them.

My Project

My students are in desperate need for headphones to help them access their chromebooks in class for much needed Science research. A classroom set of headphones will help with this need.

With our new Next Generation Science Standards, students are challenged to inquire about phenomena around them.

After receiving class chromebooks, students are still in need of headphones to help navigate programs, simulations, and videos without disturbing other classmates.

The headphones will help students be able to increase understanding and knowledge by providing them opportunities to conduct research without creating a distraction to others that are in the classroom working on other projects.
