My Students

My students are a group of unique individuals. As 6th graders they're a lot more mature than past groups and they share a strong love of reading amongst them that I've not seen in a long time. Their interest in technology beyond the basics of social media and cell phones is what prompted me to begin this adventure.

The diversity in this group allows me to reach kids that would not otherwise be able to have this type of exposure to STEM activities and events.

I'm able to not only get more females involved, but more African American and Hispanic students as well. I'm excited to give more real world technology experiences to this underserved population.

My Project

The Lego Mindstorm robotics program has become one of the leading robotics programs used by schools and state/national competitions. I would like to be able to give my students the exposure and opportunities associated with this program as well as the knowledge to be able to choose a career path they would not ordinarily select or have information about.

Being able to have a robotics kit of our own will allow us to continually use and get familiar with the parts used in competitions and have parts of our own for future use in those competitions that do not provide parts.
