Mr. Vickers from Windham ME is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Creative Station

My students need the opportunity to create and personalize. This kit will give students the experience of creating things like, personalized items, logo creation, branding, and maybe even T-shirts!

My Students

We are in rural Maine, about 20 minutes northwest of Portland. Students are diverse economically and culturally. We have quite a bit of technology devices and are just diving into the pedagogy of technology and how it can help us.

Our students love to create and be producers, we just need more tools to be able to provide this opportunity.

Students are making posters to support different activities and lessons but have no way to print them out. We would love to have some more tools to show of our creations.

My Project

The vinyl cutter will provide students with an opportunity to create personalized things like, water bottles, clip boards, shirts, stickers, stencils, and more.

Students are a goldmine of creativity.

At our school we have some ways for students to unleash this in music, art, writing, and drama. We want to introduce students to creativity that can also prepare them for a career. With this kit we are adding to the experiences that our students have before they have to decide what path they will choose. With more creativity options students have more opportunities to find something to be passionate about.
