Techno Geeks Can't Compete Without Technology

Help me give my students 3-D Printers and filament to create whatever they can image to solve community issues.

My Students

My students are the brightest, most brilliant lights that are but a glimmer of the future. These kids love discovery learning in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).

My students are innovative, tenacious, motivated, dedicated, and willing to work hard to develop revolutionary problem-solving skills for the 21st-century to find new ways to build their community.

They do whatever they put their minds to. They are willing and able to change the future. I want to help this group of young people make those creative visions of ingenuity a reality.

My Project

As a STEM endorsed teacher, I enjoy flipping the traditional ideas of learning, upside down, and creating a revolutionary classroom where students are experimenting with innovation. In this technology literate world, any interaction with up-to-date technology increases students’ understanding as well as their desire to learn and use the new technology! Teaching critical thinking, problem-solving, collaborating, and communication skills are vital for students to successfully navigate their technological future and that is what this project will do.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve their academic achievement but will open the doors of learning and career readiness for the future generation.

This project will incorporate advancing technology with real world application and skill development. My students have already begun a prototype for a hand held teacher air sensor for students with sensitive respiratory systems. This is an amazing opportunity and It’s preparing my students to be problem solvers and community advocates. It will also prepare them for different employment possibilities and currently jobs that do not exist.
