  • My Class Needs STEM kits to foster a desire to learn with STEM

    Kindergartens & STEM! Classroom Project at Upper Sumas Elementary
    Launched September 11th, 2017 Project Deadline February 8th, 2018
    Classroom Size 20 Students School Size 242 Students

    My Students

    My class consists of 20 eager and curious kindergarten students. We are a school community consisting of farms, First Nation reserve, and suburban housing. I want to improve students problem solving & computational skills using hands on learning through STEM activities. With new STEM tools I will foster an early interest in Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics. Students are naturally curious and the use of problem solving with technology is necessary in their future educational lives.

    How will this project impact them?

    Students will learn to demonstrate a basic understanding of building, designing, problem solving and the confidence to share their ideas. These are basic stem skills that are beneficial in helping students learn problem solving skills. Using STEM kits offers students a chance to develop and demonstrate their abilities to problem solve and offers students a chance to display their scientific, mathematical or technological creativity. Students will show an understanding to how things work and enhance their technological education. Students who struggle with fine motor tasks will have the opportunity to demonstrate their skills and be successful in school. This supports the ADST of the new BC curriculum
