Welcome to 6th Grade Careers in Engineering/Coding,
7th Grade Engineering and Robotics and
8th Grade Principles of Applied Engineering!
We are going to have a very exciting and fantastic year.
My family: daughter Amanda, children Mason and Mariah, son Steven and wife Toni, with daughter Amy and my husband Bill.
Welcome back to school and to Mrs. Adkins' Engineering, Technology and Robotics classroom. This year I will be teaching two 6th grade Careers in Engineering / Coding, two 7th grade Engineering / Robotics classes and two 8th grade Principles of Applied Engineering. All of these classes are student centered in the Engineering/Tech Ed. lab. Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) are all elements in everything we learn in the Engineering/Tech Ed. lab thus enabling students to become STEM literate.
We will be going over classroom expectations and lab safety the first week of school.
Many exciting learning days are to come. Students will be using Google Classroom to do daily warm-ups and assignments. I will be posting assignments in Google Classroom and Google Calendar. Please ask your students to show you their Google Classroom to keep up to date on assignments. I will also be sending out Remind and Skyward email notices. Please see instructions on how to sign up for these. Please just make sure you are in the right grade level. Students who have cell phones should sign up as well. You can also use an email address if you don't have access to text messages or want to receive text messages.
We will be using Google Educational Suite, including Google Drive, Google Classroom and the students' GCISD gmail. I look forward to having your student in my class this year!
Students will not be permitted to eat in the Engineering / Tech Ed. lab this year. They may only have water bottles with lids that close. Please nothing other than water in the lab. This is a district wide decision.
Please sign up for my Remind account for important reminders and updates also:
