Art Supplies for STEAM in the HS Science Classroom
My students need clay so that they can construct the different parts of organisms and understand their functions.
Students will need pencils and markers to draw notes.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Many High School students have not found a way to make learning science interesting and exciting. By bringing art into the classroom, we are introducing them to a whole new way of learning and experiencing the beauty that is science in their lives.
My students are from a high poverty area, and many of them do not understand the possibilities that await them after high school.
By exciting them with science now, many will discover STEM careers that they never knew were possible or exciting. Just because the material is getting harder, doesn't mean that high school students need to be turned off from learning about the world around them. By bringing new and exciting ways to learn into the classroom, we are exciting the future leaders about their futures.
Students will use drawing to be their main mode of note writing, and be able to better visualize the processes that are taking part in the world around them. Clay will also help students sculpt different organisms around the world, and get a better understanding of how they function.
By donating to this project, you are allowing high school students to fall in love with science and see their futures taking place in STEM careers.
We are building a generation excited about STEM and making a difference in the world.
