My Students

If I could describe my classroom in five words, they would be: curious, rigorous, encouraging, engaging, and family.

The students in my class have complete ownership of their own learning and have a huge impact on what we are going to be studying.

They are very creative and full of questions. My students have voiced over and over their interest in coding and robotics. My students are begging for more electronic knowledge. They are so eager to learn anything new and exciting. They love doing hands on projects that allow them to think outside the box.

They are fearless when it comes to technology and, as children of the 21st century, they need to be prepared to use a variety of tools to engage their world.

My Project

The spheros robots will help students understand and apply coding. This is a very important skills the students of the 21st century will need to know.

As robotics and computers become increasingly prevalent in students' lives, understanding programming and programming concepts is becoming very important for students' success.

Robots are a fun, easy, and effective way to learn about computer programming. Programming a robot has tangible, observable effects.

Robotics in schools can help these students turn their frustration into creativity and innovation. This is a valuable life lesson that teaches our students perseverance and determination when faced with challenges. Students learning robotics are able to channel their frustration into trying harder and aiming higher.
