Can We Build It?

My Students

The student population we serve is primarily first-generation Americans. Our families come from all over the world, seeking a better quality of life for their children. These hard-working​ families face many challenges, including finding employment, housing, learning a new language and culture.

Their main goal is to provide for their children, and our main goal is to make sure their children are given every available opportunity to succeed.

Our school is dedicated to helping students and their families.

My Project

These engineering kits will enhance our students' learning in several ways. The kits will motivate the students to engage in meaningful learning​ while playing interactively with other children.

STEAM activities help students focus, stay on task, and use critical thinking skills.

These are imperative for all children to compete and excel in today's world. With our world becoming an increasingly complex place, it is so important for children to grasp STEAM concepts and start to prepare for their future.

The kits will be used in our learning centers. They will help with math and science concepts and topics. Besides, it is just plain fun!
