The STEAM Makerspace will support an energetic, innovative, and creative group of Kindergarten through 6th grade students. I would like to offer a school wide STEAM Lunch Club three times a week. I need materials to engage students in indoor Science, Math, Engineering and Art activities. The materials I have chosen are based on an analysis of my students' diverse needs, learning styles, and interests. Different activity stations will be set up each week, and students can choose to engage in any activity. Origami is an age old craft of paper folding that many students don't engage in any more. Origami is said to engage the entire brain, using hand-eye coordination, visual and spatial reasoning, math reasoning and attention, among many more. Containers will be used to organize all these materials, so many students can continue to benefit from these materials in the future. The copper tape, diodes, and batteries can be used for a number of activities at various grade levels. The microphones and green screen will support the older students in video creating and editing.
