My Students

We believe that learning is a part of life. With this in mind, we try to bring our STEAM Lab to life and avoid worksheets at all costs. Our students are consistently engaged in as many hands-on investigations as possible.

Our student body is incredibly diverse.

We are a Title I junior high school with students who come from some of our least affluent neighborhoods. Many of these students have little or no experience with science in kindergarten through 6th grade. This is a serious problem, and we do all that we can to provide nine years of Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) activities in only the two years that students attend our school.

Our students have a strong desire to learn about our world and the ways that STEAM ideas come to life. We are facing serious problems with our environment and ecosystems; our students today will be the decision makers of tomorrow. It is critical that we provide access to relevant STEAM information that connects learning with their daily lives.

My Project

The plywood being purchased in this project will be used by my students to laser cut custom, creative clocks. Our students will use TinkerCAD to make creative and unique clock face designs. They will export their designs as a digital SVG file in order to bring their creativity to life as a wood clock face. Students will be able to paint or stain their clock to add finishing touches. We will buy cheap clocks at the local thrift stores in order to harvest the time keeping mechanisms needed to make working clocks.

Students will be able to convert their creativity into functional, useful pieces of time-keeping technology.
