My Students

My school has students ranging from pre-k through sixth grade. We have a free or reduced price lunch qualifying rate of seventy percent. We have a very high English Language Learner (ELL) population. We also have many students who speak another language at home. The larger part of our population does not have access to a working computer with Internet at their home sites.

My goal has been to expose students across grades two through six to Computer Programming and Technology in my classroom.

My Project

My project was inspired by Ms. Sharma's project - RoboRAVE: Here We Come!

I am the instructor for the Enrichment classes at our school and all of my students want to learn how to code and work with robotics.

We have several after school programs that these classes will enhance and compliment.

I am requesting books/manuals to help facilitate these classes and to help students take ownership in the class and work collaboratively on projects.

I am requesting Arduino Uno starter kits, as well as various bearing and spring packages to assist in the construction of the student designed projects.

My students will be using these materials to construct "machines" that they have designed with the help of one of our retired engineer volunteers.
