• 3D Printers for STEM

    Not every student has the opportunity to use a 3D printer, however every student that take a STEM course should have the opportunity to use one. STEM is growing in schools and around us and so are 3D printers. In STEM, students learn to design using computers and with the access of a 3D printer, these students will be able to make their projects come alive.

  • Ballistics in Forensic Science

    Forensic ballistics is the examination of evidence relating to firearms at a crime scene, including the effects and behavior of projectiles and explosive devices. A forensic ballistics expert matches bullets, fragments, and other evidence. Forensic Science students at Allen High School will be immersed in the study of ballistics with realistic tools and crime scene recreation and modern forensic techniques to become experts in the Sacco & Vanzetti crime scene which happened in the 1920s.

  • Hands On and FULL SPEED AHEAD!

    This grant will provide a dynamic hands-on experience for 6th graders that they can, in turn, share with kindergarteners through vertical teaming that will ignite and expand their understanding of the Force and Motion Unit. Most specifically, it will help 6th graders explore and discover what speed is all about through the building and modification of model cars, technology enhanced ramps, collection of speed data, speed calculations, and graphing.

  • High resolution WiFi cameras to view, capture, and edit microscopic images

    Anatomy & Physiology and Pathophysiology students will use these high resolution streaming WiFi cameras to view, capture, and edit microscopic images. By creating its own WiFi signal, the camera can connect with the students' Android or iOS device with the free MotiConnect app. This will be used by students to observe normal tissues in anatomy and pathologic or cancerous tissues in in pathophysiology.

  • Makers in the Middle

    With the increased availability of technology, a culture of making is becoming very important to both businesses and institutions of higher education. In order to provide Allen students with opportunities to create and solve problems with their peers, a Makerspace initiative begin at the elementary campuses. This project would allow the same experiences for the district middle school students.
