My Students

I teach grade 4 gifted and talented students. These students live in minority neighborhoods and are from low income household. Additionally, some of these students are encountering homelessness and do not have access to STEM curriculums that would help them to become excellent problem solvers and critical thinkers, and to prepare them for 21st century employment.

Nonetheless, they are excited and eager to learn.

They are highly motivated to become part of a global initiative that would help children who are encountering homelessness and provide educational resources to ensure they have the resources necessary to learn.

My Project

The Stem bundles will help my students to have a clear and accurate understanding of what engineers and scientists do. Additionally, the Engineering materials will educate students on the range of fields that engineering encompasses. If their understanding of engineering is inaccurate, it could affect their understanding of the role of engineering in their lives and their interest in engineering as a career, especially girls.

Moreover, engaging in STEM activities will help children understand that engineers helped create almost all the objects around them; that engineering can help them develop problem solving skills by developing strategies and tackling increasing complex problems; and, that engineering can improve their math and science skills when they engage in projects that ask them to apply math skills and science knowledge.
