My Students

My inner city high school students lack resources both at home and at school. Our school district is operating at a 62 million dollar budget shortfall, so school resources are in short supply.

These kids need extra support to stay motivated to succeed in school because of the economic instability and hardships most of them face.

I love these kids' desire to break free of their circumstances. Most of them will be the first generation in their families to graduate high school. But I want to see them strive for more, for college and careers, not just a diploma and a job.

My Project

I will use these robot kits in to enable my students to participate in FIRST Tech Challenge robotics team competitions. The students will learn how to build, program and operate the robots.

Building robots will give my students experiences that will develop their critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, communication and relationship building skills that are highly sought after by employers and higher education.

Building these robots will enable my computer science students to apply what they have learned in the classroom, making the classroom learning more meaningful to them. This will increase their chances of success in the curriculum and hopefully motivate some, if not all, of them to pursue careers in information technology.
