Building and Exploring!

Help me give my students engineering supplies to create, build, design, and explore!

My Students

My students face challenges that others may take for granted each day. Ninety-five percent of our students are on a free or reduced-price lunch program. Many of our students receive food backpacks to go home with them each week.

Our students are so much fun and have amazing personalities.

They enjoy learning and make our jobs exciting. Each day, they are improving their academic ability. We challenge them every day to be the best they can be. I'm blessed to work with these amazing students every day at our school.

My Project

Each morning my students begin their day creating, exploring, building, and learning. These supplies would allow my students more supplies to invent or spark a design.

Students build and design things like bridges, towers, solving problems, or creating new inventions.

These additional resources serve as a way to let them continue exploring, learning, and growing. Not only does it allow them a chance to create but it also gives them time to build relationships when working as a team or work on their teamwork skills, which will be needed for the rest of their lives.

These dominos, interlocking straws, and blocks will allow my students additional supplies to create and build!
