My Students

Our school is located in California and has a culturally diverse environment. My students are from kindergarten through 5th grade level. They love to learn science, math, art, and technology skills, which prepares them for new era. They are very eager and enthusiastic to learn new things and take on challenges. They love to work with hands-on materials and tools. They enjoy fun activities that help to enhance their learning. Some of my students are in need of small group or focused learning environment.

My Project

Our next generation is all about hands on experimenting and getting inspired by innovations. My students will be working on STEAM activities and projects. These activities will help them design, build, play, sense, and grow. Tap & Play Magic Piano is going to help my students explore touch sensing technology, transforming fruit into a musical instrument. Instrument sounds, including a piano and a guitar, can be heard and students will marvel as each fruit produces a different note with a tap of their finger. It will be a great addition to our STEAM stations. We are always in need of batteries as they go so fast with electronic STEAM kits, so batteries would be really helpful.
