My Students

In our classroom, we try to be as hands-on and innovative as possible. We want to explore and create possibilities. Our biggest challenge is getting the materials we need to provide the ultimate learning experience. Our school is located in a low income area.

Many of our students live below the poverty line.

They work well as teams and are more like a family than many of them have at home. It is amazing what these students are doing at this school, and we would like to continue and go even further with this tradition.

My Project

Our school district has implemented a LEGO Robotics Club. This includes STEM/STEAM learning as well. These educational LEGO Mindstorms robotic sets will allow students to further their understanding of science, math, art, and other areas of education. There are definitely obvious creative implications, but they can also build their spatial and proportional awareness. Advanced kits, like the ones we are requesting, are even used on the high school and college level for computer programming, robotics, and more. They can learn so much from these sets while staying engaged and interested in what they are doing.

Your donation will improve our classroom by providing an interactive and engaging learning environment.

Students learn so much better when they are interested in what they are doing. By using robotics, these students will be learning by doing something they love to do anyway. This will help foster creative ideas and create positive interactions with their learning environment; and all of this will be done in a fun, interactive, afterschool program, open to all students in 4th through 6th grade.
