My Students

Hi! I am the teacher of a fabulous group of learners who are spread out between 7th and 12th grades! My students have a craving for technology - new technology - and I want to give them every chance to explore and create using that technology.

From building robots to solving problems, each student is essential to my class and the community.

They are the future engineers of our small town and necessary workers in the industrial sustainability plans set forth by local companies and businesses.

My students come from a rural town where over half receive free and reduced lunch. We are very blessed to have such a giving school community who love and support us and always encourage us to push learning every day, bell to bell.

My Project

The Rollercoaster Building sets will give my students the opportunity to build simple machines, learn Newton's Laws, and apply teamwork strategies. This activity will be the introduction to Rube Goldberg Projects that will be submitted as part of the new STEM curriculum.

The new STEM curriculum contains projects such as Bridge Building, Newton's Laws, and Rube Goldberg - along with robotics!

I believe these kits will help my students complete each of those projects plus encourage them to work together as partners.

My students will get a more hands-on option - which means they are learning on a different level.
