My Students

Our students love to be engaged in STEM Project Based Learning and experiences that relate to real life. Middle school students love to express themselves and have hands-on in their learning experiences. They love to build and always are excited by technological advances.

Students need hands-on math STEM learning experiences in order to become successful citizens of the future.

We are working very hard at our school to earn STEM accreditation. but need the proper tools to inspire collaboration, innovation, and creativity in students. We are in a high poverty area and lack the funds to provide the needed materials.

My Project

We are requesting the Osmo Genius Kits and bases to build critical thinking and problem solving for reinforcement of necessary STEM skills. Students need hands-on experiences that allow them to manipulate the materials they work with.

STEM literacy is a skill needed by 21st Century Learners and math lies at the basis of all STEM education.

Students will arrange tangible puzzle pieces into matching on-screen shapes and advanced levels with each victory. Important computational skills will be reinforced with the Numbers game and content specific vocabulary will be enriched with the Words tiles. Students engage in fast paced , fun , hands-on learning!
