Mrs. Gifford from Charlottesville VA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need Strawbee straws and connectors to learn about how engineers design and build. These straws and connectors will help students to be creative and explore mathematical concepts while working cooperatively with others.
Our school is in an urban area in Virginia. We take pride in being the most diverse elementary school in our district and represent about 30 different languages that are spoken by our students. Our students and teachers love our new STEAM lab (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) and make creativity and building a special part of each day. Along with motivating our students to use these 21st century skills, our teachers are always working to increase our students' academic achievement and social-emotional skills. We are proud to be the only STEAM lab in an elementary school in our school district!
In the STEAM Lab, students are learning how to integrate Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math with 21st century skills.
By using Strawbees, students will able to learn how engineers use the design process.
They will have the opportunity to be creative and explore mathematical concepts while working cooperatively with others.
With the Strawbees, students will be able to design and build many different shapes and projects. Students will be able to use the skills they have learned so far about making a plan and then executing that plan with the Strawbees. Our goal is to give students as many opportunities to go through the engineering design process as possible. The Strawbees will help us to meet that goal.
