  • My Class Needs hands on tools to solve complex problems

    Building STEAM Through Play Classroom Project at Douglas Park Community Elementary
    Launched October 12th, 2017 Project Deadline March 23rd, 2018
    Classroom Size 25 Students School Size 209 Students

    My Students

    Douglas Park is an Inner City School that serves a diverse group of learners. We have a high ratio of students with varied abilities and complex needs including ELL and Refugees. Our school has limited access to up to date tech resources. My students are inquisitive and eager to understand more about the world around them. They are excited by technology, and using it in hands on minds on activities to solve real world problems.

    How will this project impact them?

    These materials will bridge the gaps that the children may have when it comes to language and ability. They will communicate in the common language of exploration, and share in the excitement of creating, problem solving and collaboration. Through the use of hands on materials, students will be able to develop the skills needed for the 21st century through innovative, inquiry based activities that encourage critical and creative thinking skills. Working with these tools will allow students to approach complex design tasks, solve problems and think logically, while building skills in math, science and Applied Skills Design and Technology. It also supports several core competencies, including communication and critical and creative thinking. This technology will also be used in our after school coding explorations program and shared with the other intermediate classes.
