My Students

The school at which I work has devised a student-centric program that specifically entrenches youthful determination for finding ways to help organizations within the community. The combination of social responsibility and the expression of gratitude to those that impact our daily lives has empowered students to unify in improving the world in which they live.

Our school has limited resources available to advance our academic programs or initiatives.

Our community also lacks the social wealth to help make available essential components to student success. Our students come from widely varying socioeconomic levels with more than not living from paycheck to paycheck. This makes the ability to fulfill all necessary aspects of a well-rounded education especially difficult.

My Project

A STEM-centered, exploratory kit that replicates the efforts of world hunger organizations and the airdrops that are required presents a genuine struggle. The required steps to provide food to some of the most in-need global citizens involve intensive care, safety, and innovation.

Training students to be the next caretakers of worldwide well-being prepares them to take the torch for the noblest of causes; the alleviation of hunger.

Designing an airdrop apparatus showcases integral investigations of scientific and geographic principles through aerodynamics, meteorology, and map reading. It can also be linked directly to real-world work being conducted in the field.
