  • My Class Needs STEM materials to engage and explore

    Launched October 20th, 2017 Project Deadline December 31st, 2017
    Classroom Size 22 Students School Size 520 Students

    My Students

    Our class consists of 22 inquisitive learners who like to know why and how things work. They come from diverse backgrounds and cultures but consistently have one thing in common, their desire to learn and play through exploration. Though the ADST curriculum is assessed in our district, few resources are provided, and those that are have to be shared among nearly 670 students. It is my hope that through this project, I will be able to bring STEM learning and exploration into my classroom.

    How will this project impact them?

    Integrating the applied design and technology curriculum has become a costly venture. With very limited resources provided I am having to spend out of pocket to provide my students with rich, engaging learning experiences. But with a limited budget of my own there are only so many supplies that can be provided. Should my campaign be successful my students will be provided with more opportunities to explore and learn, to work well with others and be provided with 21st century learning opportunities that will help them learn the skills necessary to be a part of the ever changing workforce and technology driven world. The impact of this donation would not only help this years learners, but the students who enter my classroom for years to come.
