My Students

My 6th grade students come from a Southern California city that is diverse and has a quaint small-town feel to it. That diversity and close-knit community helped to develop the open-mindedness and compassion of my students. At the same time, they are learning how to navigate within a huge 21st century community via video games and social media.

Within my classroom, they are energetic, eager to please, and curious to learn more about our world.

They like hands-on projects and especially love to share their results with their peers.

Unfortunately, outside of my classroom, many of my students come from families struggling financially.

My Project

Our school district is currently going through many changes and my school, in particular, will be focusing on technology and exploring the world of computer science. However, many of my students come from low income households that have difficulty paying for the basics - keeping up with the latest technology is not a priority.

Through the use of robotics, my students will be able to use their current knowledge of video games or social media and learn how to code!

To do so, my students will need to design a unique program, experiment with their ideas, and communicate the results with their peers.

Having a Mindstorm Education EV3 Core Set will give my students the hands-on experience needed to program and code. Someday they may use these skills to create the next Fortnite!

“Talk is cheap. Show me the code.”
