My Students

I teach at a Title 1 school where all students qualify for free lunch. Although my students have higher performance capabilities in areas such as intellect, creativity, leadership, and specific academic fields, they require services or activities not ordinarily provided by the regular education classroom. My students are eager to come to class and learn new concepts.

My students are critical thinkers and have a passion for learning with superior attention to detail.

They look for the purpose and benefit of specialized learning by questioning and exploring new opportunities. They have the capability to break down a complex issue and find a solution that no one else has ever thought of which can make it difficult to keep them challenged. This project will provide a purpose with a creative learning opportunity for my students.

My Project

Now more than ever it's important to prepare our students for the future in today’s’ technology-driven world. Teaching STEM robotics will increase their ability to be creative and innovative thinkers that will open a whole new world of exciting opportunities that they wouldn’t have access to otherwise.

I want my students to be given the opportunity to create something interactive that will increase their engagement level in order for them to establish higher scientific reasoning and critical thinking skills.

These STEM robots will make it possible for them to work through problems visually and experiment with concepts they are learning. Coding and robotics are as relevant to our world today as learning to read and write. Without the knowledge or access to robotics in schools, there’s no way for our potential creators and innovators to build interest in these fields.
