Help Mr. Adrian

My Students

My students are getting started in the world of physical computing and prototyping and continuously amaze me with their creativity and their energy. In this unusual year we have tried to give the students access to a more creative and motivating curriculum and we are really pleased at how well they have responded.

Interested students join me for Code Club after school where they explore programming outside the constrains of a formal curriculum to create games, animations and art.

My Project

These microcontrollers will help my students explore more aspects of computing and coding while estimulating their creativity and imagination. I recently finished the Microsoft MakeCode Infosys Pathfinders Winter Institute where I learned about the Circuit Playground Express and was really impressed by the possibilities that these devices bring to the classroom. From interactive electronic greeting cards to game controllers and costume accessories, the sky is the limit. It was incredible to see the Circuit Playground Express used in the classroom setting and having this experience inspired me to bring them to our school.

Using these microcontrollers, students will be able to create their own toys, gadgets and wearables and will learn about how to use code to control electronics.

They will be able to make connections with other subject areas such as math, science and art.

With this project I am hoping to get more students interested and excited about computer science by exploring their interests and having fun.
