The students I teach come from a variety of different economic backgrounds; with 100% of students receiving free lunch. Our school is also one of the most ethnically diverse schools in San Diego. Students speak a multitude of languages including English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Somali, and Burmese.
Our school is home to students that strive to be confident, respectful, responsible, and healthy thinkers.
They are tomorrow's creative problem-solvers. I want to equip them with the necessary STEM knowledge and skills to become imaginative thinkers. These materials would provide them an opportunity to participate in hands-on STEM projects in class. Activities based on the Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards using materials that we simply don't have available.
These students show up to school looking for new experiences and excited to learn so please help me in providing this STEM experience.
My students must keep up to today's changing world. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) is important because it is part of our everyday lives. By exposing students to STEM and providing multiple opportunities to explore STEM-related concepts, they will develop a passion for it and hopefully pursue a job in a STEM field.
The Building Brick Challenge Kits I'm requesting will help to develop skills in mastering 21st-century skills and understanding physical science and engineering.
Other skills attained through our work include problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, curiosity, decision making, leadership, and acceptance of failure and more.
Please help me help our students become tomorrow's problem solvers.
