Captain Planet and the Planeteers: EcoSTEM Energy Kit!

My students need an EcoSTEM Energy Kit to help us integrate Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics!

My Students

John Glenn said "The most important thing we can do is inspire young minds and to advance the kind of science, math and technology education that will help youngsters take us to the next phase of space travel." We believe that the best STEM education starts at the elementary school level!

Our school is made up of a diverse group of kids.

Just over 75% are eligible for free or reduced priced meals and many do not have access to as many books as we'd like. Our school has two classes each of kindergarten through fifth grade students. In addition we have an on-site preschool and a family resource center.

My Project

The two Go Go Captain Planet EcoSTEM Energy Resource Kits are just what we need to infuse STEM into our curriculum. Students will investigate electrical circuits by building snap-together electronic projects that demonstrate renewable energy. Invention kits will provide my students with opportunities to design and build wind, water, and solar powered devices. Students will test variables, using multi-meters to measure the electricity generated by their inventions, and then refine the designs. As a class project, our students will assemble a solar-powered room light and phone charger, to be shipped to students in a community without regular electrical service or with extensive outages. What an amazing opportunity for an authentic STEM learning experience!

Demographics should not equal destiny.

Students from disadvantaged homes should have every opportunity to shine. This STEM project will help us develop future scientists who will change the world!
