Blowing Off Some STEAM in the Library!

My students need fun STEAM games for their maker space, so they can grow their science, math, and technology skills.

My Students

We are a middle school on an Indian Reservation in Northwest Montana, and our students range from 5th grade to 8th grade. Let me tell you a little something about our amazing community. Even though poverty is high here, our families work hard to provide the best possible lives for their children. Our kids face overwhelming odds, but they come to school smiling every day, and their energy and enthusiasm is contagious. They are excited about learning, and they love experimenting in our library's fledgling makerspace.

We have struggled to meet our reading, mathematics, and science proficiency goals, but our administrators, staff, and students are working hard to make sure everyone is successful.

Our students have big dreams. They want to live positive, productive lives, and they understand that their education will help them pursue careers that will help them achieve their goals. They also understand the importance of literacy to their future plans.

In our isolated corner of the world, resources are hard to come by. A dollar donated to our project is an investment into a group of students who deserve to realize their full potential and pursue their dreams.

My Project

Our middle school library isn't just all about books; we're all about STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics) as well. In the mornings before school starts and during lunch, our students crowd into the library to READ, THINK, and LEARN.

Our selection of STEAM games is looking a bit bedraggled after a few years of use, and we need to freshen up our inventory.

Games like Laser Tag, Roller Coaster, and Code Master allow students to engage in positive social interaction while reinforcing the science, math, and technology concepts they learn in their classrooms. Having kits available like the Sundance Solar Lab and the Wind Power Science Kit, students have an opportunity to collaborate, while experimenting and expanding their knowledge of physics, engineering, and alternative energy sources.

Your donation will help our students do what's most important to them: have fun! But they'll also be practicing their STEAM skills, learning about lasers, coding, math, and engineering!
