In today’s world, students must prepare themselves for a wide range of college and work opportunities. For our students who want to lead a happy life and enjoy the good things the world has to offer, all of our students will certainly need a quality education. This year I am working with our junior high students as we learn about Computer Programming. Students in my “Coding” class will be writing and creating programs using the Python programming language. Students will also learn Block style programming for Android Phones and Tablets using the online MIT App Inventor system.

In other various courses I am teaching, students will learn a wide range of technology applications such as MS-Word, MS-Excel, hardware and software concepts along with basic video editing and production. Students will be introduced to 3D design and 3D Printing. All students in my classes will have ample opportunity to learn and practice 21st Century Skills throughout the semester and year.

U.S. Air Force Academy and FIRST (Day 1)

Our first evening was spent sharing dinner and  getting to know the 24 participants in our group.  STEM teachers came together this week from just about all over the country.  I learned that NORAD is not too far away.  The control center for monitoring the airways and launching our nuclear arsenal if we ever need to.   The antennas can be seen at the top of the mountain. 

Tomorrow will be a fun filled day visiting the U.S. Air Force Academy for presentations, a tour of the cadet's engineering facility, lunch at their dining facility, a visit to the "Garden of the Gods" and dinner in evening.
