My Students

This is a group of very dedicated students who are working to graduate from high school and have been attending college courses since freshmen year in order to earn an associates degree before graduating from our school.

STEAM in the classroom is a necessity of the 21st century; jobs in demand require a variety of skills, to include coding.

The students who will benefit from this project is a combination of 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th graders from a Title 1 school in west Texas.

My Project

Coding is becoming the new second language. Students will be able to access more of the devices that require to be programmed with block coding in a tablet before moving on to other programming languages such as JAVA. Also, if a student does not have their own device to play a game in class, such as Kahoot! or use the SeeSaw, the iPad will be available to the student.

Last year I obtained my Computer Science certification, completed 100 hrs of training thanks to a grant from the state of Texas, as part of the incentive I was given 3 Parrot Drones, 5 Spheros, and Makeblocks; the Ipad is for students to be able to use the devices even if they do not have an iPad or smartphone of their own.

The robots, Spheros, and drones will be used for fun and also incorporated in the classroom to address problems related to motion and bearings, building algorithms. Some of the apps that will be used are Tynker, Tickle, Sphero, and MakeBlock.
