Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Students

Our school is a clean one. The halls are well-painted, the football team does well enough, and quite a few students have cell phones, but mine were the ones who didn't get the newest Apple or Android devices.

My students didn't believe in themselves, even less so when it came to their education.

They weren't interested in throwing themselves at something they weren't used to looking at. Things like football made sense; those tactile goals they could understand.

I have students who need the ability to visualize STEM for it to make a difference; when they can see the robot make that turn, they know they've programmed perfectly. When they see the 3D models being printed, it prints a foundation of confidence, too. PLTW and robotics help them learn that, see it, and hold it.

I have students who can believe they are intelligent, who can believe they are capable, who can problem-solve, critically think, and who can have careers in STEM.

But like that football, my students just need to see it: my students just need to hold it to run for that.

My Project

The students are needing another laptop, as their first laptop has died on them from all of the programming we have done.

We've been making video games and working with robots; the laptop just couldn't handle all of their productivity.

It's actually a nice concept, in terms of what kind of problems a teacher could have.

They have been working on MakeCode Arcade and making side scrolling video games, and writing short stories about robots, and controlling robots and making 3d modeling of houses on these laptops. It's great; they've been productive, and they have been engaged.

But I only have so many; I am afraid I can't really handle losing one of them for the students. I love that they've been creating; I don't want to have to force one of them to use their phone.
