My Students

Written by My Students - "Our Action class is very energetic and thirsty for knowledge. We are active learners and don't like to do worksheets. Our class likes to do hands-on activities and STEAM projects. We are resourceful in solving problems. We love to program robots and other gadgets. There is almost never a time where we are just sitting around. Donating to our class will help strengthen our minds and make us more creative."

"When we take a step into the room, our minds just fill with creativity." "I am always excited to see what we're doing next," was written by a student about our class.

"We are quite resourceful when it comes to projects or even a short writing. Over time, I've realized that my classmates and I are very active learners. We love the coding, architecture-like building, writing, painting, all of it!"

My Project

My students are gifted learners who complete multiple 8-day, self-directed Independent Projects in my classroom. For these projects, they can choose from projects having to deal with art, technology, construction, and language. As we discussed new ideas for projects, the Cozmo robot, a tablet to control it, a crystal 3D puzzle, and an Elegoo Smart Car Robotic Kit are what they researched and requested to practice coding, robotic control, logical reasoning, and electrical construction/engineering as new Independent Projects.

I want to give my students my students the opportunity to interact with a ​variety of technological tools to help them build a strong technology skill set that can be applied in a number of career paths.

These Independent Projects allow for individual interests and abilities while at the same time helping students determine if the type of work required would actually fit their personality, abilities, and interests. The Cozmo robot and the Elegoo Smart Car Robotic kit would allow students to explore the Industrial Engineering and Technology Career Path in a new way.
