So Many Small Parts and No Place to Put Them

Help me give my students a place to store all the small parts that they use to build robots.

My Students

I have the most enthusiastic, inquisitive students! Applied technology attracts students who like to work with their hands. They like to take things apart and build new things. They love to be out of their seats working on projects. They love to choose their projects and the direction that their learning will take them.

These kids thrive in an environment that provides them a greater variety of ways to express themselves; typically not found in other classrooms.

My students live in a somewhat rural suburb. While many students live close to school and can ride a bike or walk to school, many others live in neighborhoods with homes spaced far apart from neighbors on narrow, winding roads. A good number of kids take the bus to school; making before and after school events more challenging. Students typically come from homes where both parents work.

The kids who like to take applied tech classes love being out of their seats. They need to be active and moving. Typically, they do not like to write, but are highly engaged in projects and experiments.

My Project

Keeping things neat and organized is an important part of maker space. When kids are working on projects, we all have to know where to go to find a part. And of course, keeping a clean, tidy work area is a part of any career tech education course. It encourages safety and good work habits.

In a multi-functional classroom, keeping all the small electronic parts is a special challenge.

The cabinets we have were designed years ago to hold books! Now we have servo motors, sensors, prototyping circuit boards, cables- the list goes on and on. Keeping all of these things organized but easily accessible so kids can get what they need when they need it is the ongoing project. We also need for the kiddos to be able to put their parts away quickly at the end of a class period so the next class can come in and get to their work.

The requested larger colored bins will fit the tall cabinets in the work space. These should hold project materials such as dowels, spools, hot glue guns, glue sticks, soldering materials and other "larger" items. The stacking bins will fit the short over-the-counter cabinets. These should hold all different kinds of robot parts from servos to microprocessors to wheels.
