My Students

I teach 5th grade at a public school and my classroom is full of bright, ambitious students who each have varying degrees of strengths and challenges. There are students who work at high school ability levels and students who struggle to read and write. Regardless of their individual abilities, every student loves learning in their own unique way.

To most of these students, STEM, coding, and robotics are a whole new experience just waiting to be explored!

They eagerly look forward to our projects with inquiring questions "Can I really do that...?" Their interest alone demonstrates their desire to learn more!

My Project

My students are excited to learn about robotics and coding. The WeDo robot set will provide our students with easy STEM start-up opportunities and move on to more advanced experiences. The iPad covers will allow us to protect the iPads used for coding so the technology will last for years, allowing multiple years of students using these technologies!

Our students are creative, curious individuals who thrive on new challenges and learning opportunities.

They need more experiences using electronics and coding. They also need time to develop teamwork skills as they work together to build and program. These experiences will help open doors in their future and the STEM items provided in this grant will make this all possible!
