Over these 5 days, learn to wire and program circuits using breadboards, sensors, and Arduinos. Week 1, we’ll create games along the way and even modify them for an extra challenge. Week 2, we’ll build a remote control car to program and test on student designed tracks. Week 1 is an introductory camp covering basics such as completing circuits, initializing variables, and utilizing different sensors. Week 2 is an advanced camp covering loops, conditional statements and motors. (Prior experience is recommended for Week 2)
I am a third generation educator with a passion for science, technology engineering, art and mathematics.Originally from Milwaukee, WI, I graduated from Washington University in St. Louis (Wash U) in 2016 with a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. At WashU I completed research projects in helicopter wakes using numerical solutions, co-authoring peer reviewed papers and presenting research. I also completed an internship at Toyota Motor Manufacturing in Troy, MO, tracking defects on engine cylinder heads. My senior year of college, I worked at Challenger Learning Center St. Louis, leading imitation space missions, engineering design challenges and summer camps for students. After graduating, I taught 5 years, starting with middle school science then branching out into robotics, art, music and chess. For Robotics, I designed curriculums aligned with MO state science standards. I have two teacher certifications in progress, mathematics from grades 5-12 and physics from grades 9-12. I currently attend the University of Rhode Island as a doctoral student in ocean engineering. I focus on underwater robotics. I really enjoy fabricating and teaching others to do the same. Outside of work I enjoy drumming, playing soccer and riding my bike.
I grew up in California’s Bay Area. I attended Saint Mary’s College where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology in 2009, while competing as a four year D1 rower. After graduating I joined the Lasallian Volunteers, an Americorps program, and taught middle school in Camden, NJ and St. Louis, MO. I have been a classroom teacher for 13 years covering science, math, art, physical education, swimming, and robotics. I coached my school’s robotics team in St. Louis for 2 years. One of my favorite things about teaching is creating projects that make students really use what they have learned to problem solve a real world solution. I am currently the middle school science teacher at St. Michael’s Country Day School and I love it! Outside of school I enjoy riding my bike, swimming, frisbee, and rowing.
