My Students

My students are curious, engaged, and brave learners. They are eager to learn new technologies, use new equipment and materials, and show their learning in new and interesting ways. The students in my classes are eager to create instead of to consume.

My students love to design, create, and build, and this project will help them achieve these goals.

My students love to intertwine science, technology, engineering, and math. This project will supply materials so that students can bring their creations to fruition.

My Project

The materials that this project provides are necessary for students to build STEM projects. Students are tasked with designing and building multiple different projects throughout the year including solar cars, rockets, and robots. The Dremel rotary cutting tool with protective face mask will be used by students in several classes as they design, build, test, and modify their STEM projects.

Students will be able to use the tools provided in this project as they design, build, test, and modify their STEM projects such as solar cars, robots, and rockets.

The vinyl sheets will be used in conjunction with equipment already owned to decorate and add context to the STEM projects. These tools will be used by several classes each year which maximizes the impact on learning.
