My Students

The students that I work with are eager and enthusiastic about STEAM activities. I am fortunate to work with students in Grades K-6 who value learning opportunities that are engaging and foster preparation for future jobs. For me, it is the most worthwhile experience to witness students taking thoughtful risks, working though the creative process, collaborating with others, and solving problems.

The STEAM model approach promotes inquiry, collaboration, and emphasis on process-based learning and utilizes the integrity of the arts.

My Project

These materials will allow students to create an artful moving bot while experiencing the important aspects of STEAM learning. Each component of STEAM can be broken down to provide a specific example. The Science component of this project helps students understand electricity and how the flow of electricity is an electrical current. The Technology aspect teaches students about circuits and how electricity currents flow through a closed path. Engineering the bot involves designing and often including many iterations of the design. The Artistic lines resulting from the bot's movements promotes discussion about examples of lines used in art. The Math component is a perfect way to discuss voltage and how to match the motor and power source voltage.

This STEAM based project is a perfect way to guide student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking; it will help to build the foundation that is needed to persevere in future projects/careers.

The most successful learning experiences are often when students don't realize they are learning. Giving my students this opportunity to have fun learning yet promoting the 4C's (critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication) is the best experience. Thank you for providing this opportunity!
