My Students

Our students are future engineers and computer programmers learning 21st-century skills in our STEM/STEAM lab. We have gifted and talented students from first to fifth grade. They are engaged and excited when using hands-on activities to bring new skills to life. They are getting experience in robotics, coding, engineering and more.

Seeing the smiles on their faces when they have a breakthrough is priceless.

Our students face many challenges coming from low family income homes where they are economically disadvantaged.

My Project

Students will learn by teaching their family members at home using the PowerMyLearning Program. When students actually teach the content of a lesson, they develop a deeper and longer-lasting understanding of the material. Learning happens best when what's happening in school is reinforced by what's happening in a student's home.

Learning by teaching can help improve student efficacy, confidence, and communication skills.

If students feel confident enough to explain it to someone else, they develop a higher sense of self-efficacy. They will believe in their own abilities to meet challenges and complete tasks successfully.

This program also has Family Playlists which are interactive assignments where students "teach" what they learned in class to a parent at home, and then the parent gives feedback to the teacher. Students will have a sense of pride in teaching a parent at home.
