My Students

My students deserve a 21st century education that allows them to not only absorb content, but to apply what they have learned in meaningful real-world experiences. Four years ago, a group of teachers decided to provide students with hands-on ownership of their learning. This was a major pedagogical shift that allowed our students to utilize project-based learning as an outlet for deeper, more relevant learning.

Our students live in a beautiful rural community that values STEM and project-based learning.

Students need to be prepared for high school as well as college and career. Allowing them a global understanding will better open opportunities for themselves and their community. This drive to give students every opportunity possible is a mission and a vision of this school district.

My Project

Through the stages of design thinking, my students are redesigning what a classroom looks like in 2018. They feel every students should have access to using 3D printers to support pathways in STEM education. Having these printers as a potential resources can truly empower my students academically.

We will be using the printers all throughout the year.

We hope to have students using them in conjunction with a CAD program to facilitate various design constructs. We will be printing models of DNA as part of our genetics unit. Also, during our tolerance unit students will have access to the printers to supplement their legacy, memorial or tribute project.
