I am a 7th/8th Grade teacher in East Harlem, New York. This is my second year teaching Science. I was recently introduced to a fabulous educational tool called Capsela that both my 7th and 8th grade Special Education and my regular education students are in love. "Capsela" is basically gears in capsules that have to be put together. Students can make motorized cars, robots and more. I would like to support my students interests and learning through using additional Capsela Kits and also a simpler kind of building kit called Gears, Gears, Gears. Some of my students are extremely challenged and need a simpler version. I would like to use these building kits with the Special Education students, as well as my regular education students. My 8th graders need to develop "Exit Project" questions based on their own experiences and observations. Some of my 8th grade boys have expressed using the Capsela kits as a springboard for their exit projects.
