My Students

Being the largest middle school in the city means having one of the most diverse schools in the city. That concept trickles down into my classroom. I have students from different social, economical, and ethnic backgrounds in each of my classes.

Experiences are what makes the learning we do apply to their lives.

The students in my class are exposed to new ideas and experiences daily. No mater if they are in my class or in the Robotics/STEM Club, I want them to be able to have a hands on opportunity to the stuff they watch on YouTube!

My Project

Student groups will be using the drones as the end product of the design process. They will start with watching indoor drone races on YouTube then they will learn about the safety and have a discussion of flying indoor micro drones including the parts and purposes. They will use tinkercad and Thingiverse to design and create 3D models of what their drone should look like and it will include all of the essential parts to make it flyable once the electronics would be added. They will use mapping software to create a flyable track inside of our school.

Then, they will be able to begin what will be a first time experience for most of them.

They will use Google classroom to vote on which track to create and create the live track.

After the track is created, they will use the drones and race against each other. Depending on their success they may have to revisit the design process and rework some of their original ideas.
