About My Students

I have AWESOME kids! They ask good questions. They are curious. They want to learn. However, they lack resources.

Most come from families that often do without. However, they have found science fun and can't wait for the next experiment, lab or activity. Many times, these kids will stay after school for an extra experiment or way to show what they know. Hands-on activities are important to this group of kids.

It is difficult to ask our kids to bring extra resources since we are in one of the highest poverty districts in the country. Your blessing is noticed and appreciated by them (and myself!)

Several years ago, students though a grant, set up data collecting devices such as digital rain gauges, temperature, wind speed and light sensing.

The students have been learning programming and robotics building and want to bring those skills to environmental science. They want to transform the devices to a wireless system so the classroom can get live data without leaving the classroom.

In Their Own Words

We learned how to program our robot this past year. One student got a Raspberry Pi for Christmas and we wondered can we set up the sensors outside to transmit wireless.

We've already researched how to connect the devices through the USB port on the Raspberry Pi and the basic programming needed to send the data indoors.

Mr. C is encouraging us to try it. It may not work, but we won't know till we try. He is letting us do all the research, and we've already experimented with the Raspberry Pi on of our classmates got for Christmas.

If it does not work the first time, the robotics team is willing to help us figure out why.

This is important to us because we asked a question. Mr. C told us to figure it out, so we want to! If we connect the Raspberry Pi inside to the computer, we can set up a program to record the data live 24 hours a day.

We can't find anyone that has done it, so we want to be the first and show others what we can do.

The final step is to maybe set something up on the school website that people can see the conditions at school from their own home.
