  • My Class Needs STEM materials to Engage my students in Science and Problem Solving.

    Launched October 13th, 2017 Project Deadline January 10th, 2018
    Classroom Size 30 Students School Size 184 Students

    My Students

    The class that will benefit from this project is comprised of 30 fourth and fifth graders. They come from a diverse set of backgrounds and all have their own learning journeys. My students thrive on "hands on" learning . They prefer the process of inquiry and many of them have demonstrated a keen interest in STEM which I would like them to pursue. We would also like to integrate ART thus the term, STEAM. Our school does not have any funds to purchase the necessary equipment.

    How will this project impact them?

    Our children are growing up in a world where computer literacy is as essential as reading, writing and mathematics. My intention is to introduce a variety of STEAM activities to my students during science class in order to make science more engaging and fun for them. With these tools, my students will learn how to work collaboratively, communicate effectively and solve problems- skills that are becoming more and more relevant in today’s society I would be using the resources to enhance the new Science curriculum to teach the core competencies of cooperative group work, inquiry, problem solving and comparing results. I am hoping that when the students have “mastered” their learning they will be able to work with younger students teaching them what they have learned thus creating a passion for STEAM science.

    ** Payment Processing Fee: An average of fees charged to MyClassNeeds for processing donations (e.g. credit card payments through a secure server). We have worked hard to select the most secure option for the cost.

    *** Optional Donation: An optional donation to support MyClassNeeds which is calculated at 15% of the project’s price tag. The optional contribution supports the work we do to engage teachers, build awareness, and to generally run MyClassNeeds. To do that we need a world- class website supported by strong business systems and processes that improve over time.
