My Students

My students come from many different neighborhoods and have diverse racial and cultural backgrounds. They are drawn to our school from all over the city by our school's STEAM theme. Although many students specifically choose our school because they are interested in science and engineering, most of them do not have resources to explore science and engineering at home. 84% of the students at my school have free or reduced lunch, and few of my students' parents work in science. My students really need and appreciate the awesome science experiences we provide school.

My Project

My students are learning about life, and consequently, about examples of non-life- vibro-bots! To prepare for this project, students have been using debate and experiments to uncover defining characteristics of living things. One of the most often proposed criteria for living things is movement. Students will use the engineering design (and revision!) process to create vibro-bots, and examine the inevitable conclusion that marked movement may not be a defining characteristic of life. Additionally, students will compare and contrast the vibrobot (a randomly moving toy powered by a motor) with a bona-fide robot (which responds to stimuli). Your gift of motors allows students to take home and treasure their vibro-bot; instead of having to disassemble it to provide parts for the next class.
