My Students

We are a Title 1 school. Our students are the first generation to graduate for their families. Our students do not always have access to computers at home or the technology necessary to complete our STEM projects. They have limited exposure to the equipment and programs used in the classroom. Our students compete at an intense STEM competition every year. Every year, our students feel limited to their work because of our resources. Our students would love this help to change and compete where our minds want to take them!

My Project

This computer will allow my students to create, program, design and print items for their competition. My students have registered to build a bionic hand, build a model bridge for the future, a mousetrap, car engineering sketch and our banner to represent us at competition. This computer will allow students to further their visions on STEM competitions and how we can change our sketches and reprogram our bionic hand. The students have limited access to computers and programs at home. This will keep the students motivated and excited for our competition in January. We appreciate the support. We are so grateful!
