Turning Technology Consumers Into Technology Creators!

My students need laptops that can help them with new programming and content in robotics.

My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day with a question, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. I ask them, "What have you wondered about today?" and they reply, "How does this?", or "Why did this?" I want them to know I believe in them and they can do anything and that starts with questioning the world around you.

I teach at a Title I school in Houston where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Many of my students receive backpack food on the weekend, and our school also runs a food pantry for our families. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.

My Project

Students will be using these ChromeBooks to work to prepare for upcoming FFL competitions. The finished product will allow them to practice using computer-assisted design software, as well as experience the practice of engineering and design in a competitive real-world scenarios. Most recently our events centered around the problem of delivering medication to the elderly that have trouble with commuting to pharmacies.

This project would significantly help my students' understanding of the design cycle.

They would see the process connect to a final product, relevant to themselves and impacting the world for better. Students can practice using design technology and experience careers related to it: architecture, graphic design, modeling, and public policy. In the end, they will be problem-solvers, empowered to take the skills and knowledge in their class to improve their lives and those of people around them.
