My Students

I teach in a low socioeconomic neighborhood. The students in my class are a mixture of English Language Learners and gifted students. Some students face challenges of poverty, family instability, and emotional struggles. Although my students may face some of these problems at home, they come to school every day willing to learn.

The school's motto is "Never, never, never give up!" My students have definitely shown this kind of positive attitude in times of need.

My students enjoy learning about the world around them and have inquisitive minds. They want to make a difference in the world.

My Project

I am requesting a VEX Crossbow, VEX Snapshot, VEX catapult, VEX Crossfire, VEX Switch Grip, and VEX Flyer robotic activities to incorporate STEAM into the classroom. Students enjoy building and being creative with robotic activities. With these requested resources, my students will learn how to read instructions on how to build a robotic machine that will incorporate kinetic and potential energy. Students will explain and describe how building these machines can impact and effect the real world situation.

It's so important in today's world that students get the necessary tools to be successful in a science filled world.

With these VEX activities, my students will learn and be engaged in building, coding, and STEAM.
