Over these 5 days, learn to wire and program circuits using breadboards, sensors, and Arduinos. We’ll create games along the way and even modify them for an extra challenge. This camp culminates in a real-world science and engineering project. In week 1 we’ll build our very own weather station and arcade games. In week 2 we’ll build a remote control car and arcade games.
Can’t wait to see you in August!
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.
