March 2017: Ezra

DSC_4021-199x300 March 2017: EzraEzra is a fourth grade student from Post Oak Elementary in the Building Child and Family Initiative (BCFI) course.

What is your favorite subject in school?
I don’t do it in school but engineering and technology. The subject I like in school is Math because it’s very interesting. The way my teacher teaches it, she makes it very interesting. I don’t know what’s different. I’ve just known my teacher since kindergarten; so, I have a good relationship with her, everybody in my class does.

What do you want to do when you grow up?
I want to be an engineer because I like robots.

Is there anything you would like to build as an engineer?
A hoverboard. I already have some ideas on how to make it. It will need a fan, a lot of gears and a switch that you turn as you’re going. Then, it turns a gear, which turns another gear, which goes all the way into the board. Then that turns on the fan—and there’s going to be a lot of fans. Eventually, once you have enough power, you’ll start floating.

Why did you join ITEC?
Because I’ve actually been doing it for three years now and I really like it and its fun. I’ve done coding, programming and Lego robotics. My favorite would probably be between Lego robotics and coding.

What has been your favorite thing about BCFI? DSC_4021-199x300 March 2017: Ezra
Building robots and programming them.

If you could tell your friend something about this program, what would it be?
That it’s really fun and that it teaches you a lot about programming.

What is the most important skill you’ve learned in the program?
Programming because if you know how to program you can make things. I actually, pretty much, knew the rest of the other things, so that’s why programming is the most important. Also, it’s very challenging to program.

If you could have any super power, what would it be? Why?
I would have the ability to read minds and do stuff with my mind because I could make things out of the top of my mind and things would be easier. Like, I could just read my teacher’s mind and know what she was going to say before she said it.
