Bringing S.T.E.M to the Next Level

My students need an iPad in the classroom to use with our science curriculum. The use of technology in conjunction to the science lessons is a must! Thank you

My Students

How do you turn second graders into life long learners? You provide them with high-quality technology. Many of my students come to me without having used technology.

This is due to the fact of not having access to STEM materials inside and outside of the classroom.

Many of my students are English Language Learners and their learning isn't supported at home due to lack of resources. With these STEM materials my students will be provided with new ways to learn using technology. All students deserve access to technology that will instill their love for learning while also meeting their academic needs.

My Project

We are a STEM school and our science lessons require the use of technology. Without the use of technology students will not be getting everything out of the curriculum that they need. Technology brings our curriculum to the next level. This iPad will be used in groups on a daily basis, not only during science but in all content areas. It is a technology era and students love to implement the use of technology in any way they can. Not only do students enjoy using technology it also heightened the learning experience greatly. With the use of technology student have fun while learning!
