My Students

We are a charter school that teach low income families. We are trying to teach students in new ways. We, as a school, are trying our best to better teach our students what new and exciting technology that are out there in a technological world.

For our students, we would like to give them more ways to learn.

This will help with multiple computer programs such as Premiere, Photoshop, and animation. With this we could foster new careers that students did not know about and teach with a different aspect of learning (hands on).

My Project

We are trying to find new and creative ways to bring education to students. With a Virtual Reality System we are hoping to show the students what new technology that is improving every day and how they can use it.

We also want to be able to bring a child the experience of going to far off lands explore under the water and even experience something they may never get a chance to see our use.

With the Virtual Reality System we are hoping for student to fall in love with technology for one day they might have a passion to bring about the next best technological marvel we get to use.
