My Students

Our students compete at the local, state, and national level.

Middle-school students in our Technology Student Association (TSA) are learning to lead in a technical world.

Our students exemplify the following principles of leadership: Model the Way, Inspire a Shared Vision, Challenge the Process, Enable Others to Act, and Encourage the Heart.

Here are some of the categories our students compete in: Coding, STEM Animation, Invention and Innovation, Electrical Applications, Microcontroller, Problem Solving, Mechanical Engineering, CAD Foundations, Website Design, Dragster, Junior Solar Sprint, Tech Bowl, and Technical Design.

My Project

My middle school students learn about coding and engineering in two classes at our school - Invention and Innovation, and Technology Systems. Sometimes students get frustrated when learning to code. When students have a physical connection to the code, it helps them stay motivated.

The Micro:bit robot cars will help students see the connection between creativity and coding!

When we first begin the unit, we use the Micro:bit by itself and www.makecode.org to learn basic block coding. The Micro:bit has on board LEDs that students can program. Once students master the basics of Micro:bit, they can use the Micro:bit robot cars to expand their coding skills. They can also use their creativity, because the robot car has programmable LEDs, speakers, an ultrasonic sensor, and more!
