My Students

My school is located in MO where the students are focused on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). My school is a magnet school that focuses specifically on student learning in the areas of medicine and bio-science, as well as preparing them for a successful college experience.

Our students are very dedicated to their learning and education.

Students are on a rigorous educational path to great colleges and universities. My students have the drive and desire to be the best at anything they strive to achieve.

My Project

These materials will be beneficial for our students because they will be able to get some of their energy out during their lunch time so that they can concentrate fully on their classes.

This basketball system will be used outside daily during the students lunch time to improve their skills, get in some exercise and enjoy socializing with their classmates.

The students at our school don't have any way to be able to practice basketball during lunch because there are other physical education classes going on, this will enable them to have fun, get a great workout in and improve their abilities.
