My Students

I love how my high school students engage with each other and me. I am a new teacher, transitioning from a career in high tech (computer chip design). Although these students come from varying socioeconomic backgrounds, we still work together well. Our school does not just focus on common core, but also knows that many cognitive skills are required for success in college and in their careers.

Working in a school that bases 70% of the grade on project based learning is highly rewarding and makes the teacher work load easier as the students are self-directed learners.

The challenge lies in that our school district is made up of charter schools. Our schools serve a high ratio of special education students and English Language learners. I learned from last year that many of my students have no experience with robotics.

My Project

I'm excited about the opportunity to bring them a programming environment that supports an industry standard language such as Python. We have no other opportunity besides this one to provide this experience. By your donation of the 32G microSD cards, my students will be able to run Python on their EV3 robot.

On the first day of class when I told the students they would be able to program their robot in Python, they literally cheered!

They pretty much ask every day when they will get started. I'm hoping it will be in a few weeks, but it depends on getting the donations.
