My Students

My students are amazing innovators who experience their world thru a technology enhanced reality. Our class is a semester long introduction to Computer Science, coding, problem solving and process design course. This class is an elective course that is designed to expand students' ability to interface with computers and develop collaboration/ teamwork skills.

We endeavor to challenge middle schoolers to expand their concept of technology as more than just their smart phone or computer, we introduce them to game theory and app design to expand their ability to see why we are compelled to play/use our screens, and to inspire them to not only play video games but create them as well.

For some student this course is their first experience programming, while other students bring years of coding experience to the classroom which creates unique opportunities for students to use teamwork to solve challenges or rethink solutions. Having a wide diversity of backgrounds and skills leads my students to produce a range of novel solutions to the challenges presented to them.

My Project

Creating supplemental robotic activities will support student growth into college and/or career ready explorers. This project will provide 5 WONDER Robots for students to design unique solutions to programming challenges. Eighth grade students will use the robots to create a community improvement project as their final activity. By combining coding and robots, the dash and cue robots allow students to experience coding in a three dimensional space.

This project will provide students with the resources to experience robotic activities and challenges ranging from producing art, playing soccer, perform dances, writing music or even explore community service project ideas through the use of robots/programming.
