My Students

We are a Title I school in the heart of Texas. My students are inquisitive, energetic and curious. We are a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics magnet school. My students want to grow up to be computer scientists, geologists, environmental engineers, mechanical engineers, roboticists and the like.

My students pledge to push the boundaries of science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics and computer science.

Although many of my students were adversely affected by Hurricane Harvey, they are determined to not lose hope and continue pursuing their dreams.

My Project

The class set of Sphero BOLTs will provide my inquisitive students with a myriad of opportunities to be creative and have fun while learning. Students will learn through creative problem-solving activities where advanced sensors are used to track speed, acceleration, and direction.

The programmable spherical robots, which feature an LED matrix and advanced sensors, will bring Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics and computer science (STEAM+CS) learning to life!

Students will be able to create and customize games and learn to code with BOLT. Students can learn to code by drawing on the screen, by using Scratch (block-based coding language) or writing JavaScript (text coding language).
