My Students

Our students long to be part of a caring and innovative community. This new LEGO Robotics course will foster that community. I am continually inspired by the creativity and hope I see from the students in our school and I plan to use the materials and equipment to help students unleash their potential.

These materials will benefit the entire school by providing interactive STEM materials and access to LEGO Robotics.

Throughout the year, these students work very hard and deserve the equipment and basic supplies to achieve their highest potential.

My Project

Help me give my students a hands-on, cross-curricular STEM experience that engages students by providing the resources to design creations while helping them develop essential 21st-century skills such as creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration. This first step will allow students to design and build programmable robots using high-quality motors, sensors, gears, wheels, axles, and other technical components. By using hands-on robotics, students will gain a better understanding of how technology works in real-world applications.

This STEM experience challenges students to develop real-word skills of communication, coding, and collaboration while exposing them to the possibilities of their future.
