Just Hanging Around

My Students

My students are middle schoolers ((drop the mic) thank you to those who helped donate that mic). They come in all shapes and sizes, all demeanor and abilities, and all backgrounds. Some are becoming athletes, and some are becoming scholars, a few are working toward both, and there are those that aren't.

They can all find a home in my after school activities.

Regardless of the mix, most can find a way to communicate and achieve the task and challenges I set before them, whether its what's the best way to defeat that Red Dragon or how to create a fog effect that will lay low and quickly dissipate.

Many of my student are involved in my Strategy, Stage Crew, 3D printing, and now, Raspberry Pi clubs. When they bring their friends, the friends are amazed and ask "Why didn't I know of this before." Of course, the answer is because you didn't listen to the morning announcements.. or read the emails... or wonder where your friends were before now. Either way, we welcome all newcomers and occasionally parents. We have discussed and researched and found that this project may suit our needs in all clubs.

My Project

My students will be utilizing their iD more than ever for contactless situations. The Lanyards will help them have a more convient place to access them and protect against the errant dispossal during their lunch, or leaving them behind in classes.

Sure, they could use yarn or string, but having a customization that helps to unify them as a cohort will also help to heal some of the unfortunate isolations that this pandemic has created.

My students, and these times, are unique and I'd like them to have something special and useful. Thank you for your consideration.
