My Students

We are a Title I school with a total enrollment of over 700 students in grades PreK-through 5th. Our school is located in an urban setting. The school serves a diverse population where over half of the students are bilingual. Nearly 60% of the students are Hispanic, 17% African-American, and 12% Caucasian. Additionally, 99% of our students qualify for the free and reduced-price lunch program. More than three-fourths of the student population resides in low-income apartment complexes.

I am a librarian at this school who has embraced the makerspace movement, I have transformed my library into a STEM work space.

Students come to my library not only to check out books, but also to create projects, work with various apps, create videos, and code just to name a few things. My library is a happening place where you will see students learning and exploring new ideas every day.

My Project

Too often when trying to get our students to play and build, we give them standard blocks and shapes, and thus limit what they can build and do. This product, Qubits, does the opposite. This Qubits kit has nonstandard geometric shapes made of plastic that snap together. You can combine shapes in a variety of ways and bend then which will allow students to truly build anything!

This project will allow students to engage in a variety of building opportunities that will allow them to see first-hand the impact of their creation.

Students will be able to use these materials in our makerspace. Students will be shown different types of architecture in case they need inspiration. Then, their group will get to design their own creation or structure and then build it.

Participating in a rigorous process of critical thinking with work that is both self-directed and collaborative, we are also hopeful students will understand what the greater purpose of STEM is in society and how they can play a role to solve real world problems and make the community a better place.
