My students are highly motivated for short periods of time, but need to develop the stamina to delve deeper and complete learning objectives. At times it seems that some students' negative behavior receives most of the attention. I want to change this dynamic so that positive behavior becomes the main focus. STEM-related incentives (such as different puzzles, paper airplanes kit, origami kits, and much more) will inspire students to strive for success and will give them an additional opportunity to engage with science, engineering, math, and technology materials in their homes in a fun way. Research as shown that properly placed positive incentives increase student motivation for academic success. STEM-related incentives will serve to ignite curiosity and enhance their knowledge in the curriculum and interest in science.
