Hi, my name is Nicolas Fuchs, but you can call me Nick. I am a senior, engineering science student at Tufts University with a background in Robotics and Biology.
In the past I have worked with students on various different occasions. I supervised a Robotics club at my high school, helping students design and build battle-bots. I spent a summer at Tufts working with high school interns to develop a TETRIX (metal building system) curriculum for middle school students, which I am continuing on as undergraduate research. I have supervised and taught elementary students (3-5th grade) in German at the German Saturday School in Boston.
In the future I would like to spend my time teaching engineering and science to students, but am unsure of what grades I would like to teach. I have no experience teaching young students (K-2) and would like to experience it, particularly as an engineering/science type education, so as to determine what grade level I would like to teach at.
I like to spend my [free] time building LEGO/TETRIX robots, designing tracks for racing games, browsing the virtual world (I’m a forum admin and avid user of Google Earth/Maps/Streetview) and challenging my mind with puzzles such as Sudoku and various games I’ve made up on the fly.
