Meet some of our Student Tech Desk members. They work on independent projects in STEM related fields as well as help faculty and students with technology issues. Their projects focus on coding, web design, video and music editing, AutoCAD and much more.
MLTI/Apple coder Tim Hart comes in to our HS and MS for free on a regular basis to work on the Swift coding language.
A student in the Student Tech Desk course is independently coding his own website to present his economics consumer simulation project.
Student Quote:"I feel that my school didn't have many offerings of courses in STEM. I am going to major in computer science and the only related class available is the optional Student Tech Help Desk. It allows me to pursue my goals, but I feel that there should be more classes available that branches into other areas of technology and STEM related fields."
Our staff has started to use Breakoutedu to increase the problem solving skills necessary to support STEM learning. We have submitted three games to the Breakoutedu.com community, on substance abuse, science, and derivatives for AP Calculus.
Providing leadership opportunities for students. Here, one of our students is presenting at ACTEM on his journey to learn coding, and gave advice on ways educators can get young students more actively involved in this field. Watch the video of the game below that he coded as his independent project through the Student Tech Desk Course.
Students work with staff members to certify them in the Google Suite products for our badging system.
STEAM Project where students from the art class collaborated with the technology integrator to create the mural for the new Student Tech Desk classroom. Paint was donated by the teachers for this endeavor. Not seen in this picture is the Student Tech Desk sign that was created by a wood shop student on his own time and then painted by a couple art students.
Our incoming students have focused on the mathematical problem solving process and effective mathematical communication using the CueThink App.
They are now growing up with makerspaces, 3D printing labs, coding clubs, and Media Centers which are now common place in our 5 elementary schools and the middle school.
We need to continue to foster these inquisitive minds.
