My Students

We are a public charter school that serves 6-12 grade students in Dayton Ohio. We have about 330 students. 99% of our students come from lower-income families. 80% of my students are African American. Even though they have many challenges in their life they are trying their best in my technology class. Most of the students are interested in learning engineering they want to become productive citizens for the society. I teach technology and computer classes. Additionally, I run robotics club for middle and high school students. Students enjoy participating in robotics club and they work hard to be successful. My robotics club students eager to learn engineering basics and they want to become engineers.

My Project

Throughout this school year, students designed several 3-D projects on the computer as a part of the curriculum. We have computers and software to design 3-D Models but unfortunately, we cannot print those projects. If we can print out those projects, students will be more successful and creative. They will have a chance to test and refine their models. Next school year, I will teach robotics class and we will participate in several robotics competitions including FLL, FTC and vex EDR. My students need a 3-D Printer to design and test their robots. Also, students will use 3-D printer in their science and math classroom.
