Mrs. Shelley from Mount Juliet TN is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Calling Engineers for STEM

My students need Circuit Sets and Cubelet sets to learn about circuits and coding to become problem solvers.

My Students

I have the opportunity to teach a wide range of students each week. It is fun to see students at different levels and watch them learn. These students are eager to learn and create by using their imagination and problem solving skills. It is exciting to see them discuss ideas with each other and learn to problem solve. The students are able to apply what they are learning in their general education classroom to what we create in STEM class.

My Project

All students like to think they are not learning but playing. These two resources will allow the students to play with robotics and circuits. Cubelets teach robotics, coding, and design thinking in fun and easy way. Cubelets improve critical thinking and encourage students to experiment to solve a problem or create a new idea.

STEM is great way to increase student conversation and problem solving skills.

The circuit kit will allow the students to practice creating circuits to see the flow of electricity. We will test materials to see what is an insulator and a conductor. Students will design series and parallel circuits using these materials. We will start with a basic circuit. Then we will add switches and other bulbs to see how electrical currents flow.
