My Students

My school is a small rural school located in St. Martinville, Louisiana. We currently have 563 students. The school consists of 70.7% African Americans, 25.9% white students, 2.6% Latino, and .7% Hispanic. Our students come from very economically disadvantaged families who struggle to provide basic needs for their children.

My school serves students in grades 2-5 and provides rigorous academics, fantastic teachers and a safe learning environment for students.

My school is a Leader in Me School and a STEM school.

My Project

Our school is special because our students have the opportunity learn STEM education. We provide multiple avenues for students to work on Computer Science, Programming skills starting at second grade. Students really enjoy the opportunities that they have and are always excited to see what is next. Problem solving is a necessary skill and coding is a great way to hone those skills. Using robots will help keep our students engaged in their learning.

This project will allow students the ability to work on coding and apply these coding skills on STEM activities.

Problem solving is a necessary skill and coding is a great way for students to engage in those skills. Using robots will help keep our students engaged and make learning fun and exciting!!!
