My Students

In our community over 75% of children are living in poverty and they are not prepared for primary schooling. Children that live below the poverty line are 1.3 times more likely to have developmental delays or learning disabilities than those who don’t live in poverty. It is the goal of our school to offer these students the same advantages more affluent schools offer. Children in our community are living in poverty have a higher number of absenteeism or leave school all together because they are more likely to have to work or care for family members.

My Project

When giving students hands on assignments it allows them to better unferstand the world in which they live. Students will be introduced to the basic properties of electricity and electronics. They will learn the fundamentals behind circuitry and how circuits are used in all of the technological devices we use today. An overview of a simple circuit, provides insight into the types of circuits and compares the differing properties of series circuits and parallel circuits.

Students will be able to re-create circuits of various functionalities such as shining a light bulb, spinning a motor, or both.

They will be able to manipulate these circuits and create their own circuits and answer questions relevant to electrical circuitry.
