My Students

My Aerospace Engineering class is a place of hands-on exploration and discovery. Students will use this year of Aerospace to explore the nature of flight. They will learn about the very fundamental equations that govern terrestrial and space flight.

My students are truly the future innovators of their generation!

My classes are composed of a melting pot of students. They come from different backgrounds and conditions, but they all have one thing in common. They strive to understand and truly use the information that is given to them daily. They are ready for the next level of learning and I hope to provide that for them!

My Project

My students are in need of more PLA filament for our 3d printers. We have two large printers and one small printer in the lab. Each student has to learn all the procedures of design and printing from beginning to end.

Using 3d printers to produce prototypes and parts, gives my students a skill that will be priceless in their STEM futures.

With a good supply of PLA filament for our printers each student gets a chance to print. With your help we get to go beyond just theory, and use our tools to foster 21st century skill in the classroom.
