My Students

My robotics team ladies are the best in the world. They are incredibly well rounded students. They sing, they play sports, and they are all near the top of their class. They are in various clubs and organizations, including Science Olympiad.

FIRST is a phenomenal organization, and my girls have enjoyed many successes this year.

They won Rookie All Star at their first event, qualifying them for the state championship. At their second event, they won the Rookie All-Star award. At the state championship, they won Highest Rookie Seed and Rookie All Star, qualifying them for the world championship.

My Project

This trip will enable students to see more real-world applications of STEM education, talk to businesses, and visit scholarship providers.

Imagine going to a rural school with the same people you have been with most of your life.

These students will experience life as they never have before, and experience new cultures and network with people all around the world. They get to celebrate their accomplishments and strive to achieve even more success and learning.

Students from over 400 teams in 50+ countries will come together to share a common goal and vision. They will work together and make new friends as they experience this amazing giant global challenge.
