My Students

We are a small rural school district in Southwest Ohio housed in a building that is almost 100 years old. Some of my students are learning in the same classrooms that their parents and grandparents did and that makes our school a comfortable place for families to gather.

I teach an active and enthusiastic group of junior high students, girls and boys who are happy to come to school and eager to use STEM in high interest problem solving.

I am also the STEM coach and I am always looking for new ways to engage my students in using STEM principles both in and out of the classroom.

My Project

Students will use STEM to gather their own data to access our "state of the school" situation. Students will look at and use science specific research studies that identify boredom as a gateway to drug use to support survey questioning. Using Google forms, they will create and administer a survey to access what students need to curb boredom. Next they will compile the data collected and use the data and statistics to design and engineer a makerspace to curb boredom in our junior high school community. Students will design the makerspace based on student responses to include high interest opportunites that are inclusive and managable within the available space. Finally, students will use their data set to create a video presentation using the requested camera and stand that they will share with the school board and local community organizations to gather support for the implementation of their plan within our school and community. Students will drive volunteer support and direct decision making process to oversee their plan.
