My Students

I teach physical science to sixth graders at a middle school . My school is a public school where over 60% of the students receive free or reduced-price lunch. I adore my students and live for the excitement they show whenever they discover something new.

My goal is to make science class a safe, fun place where they can have opportunities to explore, challenge and learn through activities involving coding.

With budget cuts happening all across the district, we need help acquiring the materials necessary for this to happen for all of my students.

My Project

Middle School science needs to bring the real life world applications into the students' hands. This project will allow my students to achieve this through a wide variety of activities. The Sphero RVR is a revolutionary take on the programmable robot. It's drivable right out of the box, packed with a diverse suite of sensors, and built for customization.

Students will be able have access to these programmable robots that are specialized to expand students learning through play, exploration and coding of the RVR by Sphero.

Projects will include but not limited to writing a program to determine how different variables such as friction, gravity affect speed or allow students to create their own engineering lab and find the answers to their own learning.
