Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My third, fourth and fifth-grade students are excited to learn and discover in our STEAM Lab! We explore areas like computer science, 3D printing and design, chemistry, life science, engineering, and robotics.

Technology always seems to be a class favorite!

We ask, imagine, plan, create, and improve as we utilize the Engineering Design Process in many of our activities. We are always looking for ways to make STEAM subjects more interesting! Also, my students love taking care of our class pets, two gerbils and a red-eared slider!

My Project

Kids love coding! One piece of technology that I think students will be drawn to is the Raspberry Pi! The Raspberry Pi is a computer with tons of capabilities that fits in the palm of the hand. Not only is its size small, but its price tag is small as well!

This little computer is the real deal!

I attended a Picademy this summer to find out more about this small but powerful computer, and what it can do to spark excitement and interest with kids and adults. I am excited to connect with the Raspberry Pi Foundation and begin a Code Club at my school, utilizing Raspberry Pi as one of many ways to connect kids with their interest in coding.
