My Students

My technology room is a hub for many activities. In order to bring our writing into the 21st Century, we need 21st Century Technology.

I work in a beautiful Title I school located in southern Brooklyn.

Everyday I am tasked with helping the wide eyed and eager to learn children in grades 1-5 create beautiful and entertaining STEAM Projects. They love coming to the technology room once a week but are always saddened when they need to leave the room.

My Project

As times change and technology grows, I need to prepare my students for what is to come. Cross Curriculum STEAM and STEM projects are the best way to offer the eager students in my technology class a chance to learn new and exciting topics that will help prepare them for the future.

Using Chibitronics in my technology classroom allows my students to fully experience the STEM/STEAM process.

With these circuit kits my students will have the chance to create hands on projects that will light up their lives. They will be able to learn with me and on their own.
