My Students

My young scientists are in grades pre-kindergarten up to second grade. My inner city school includes students from various backgrounds including both students with special needs and students that are English language learners.

My young students love being scientists!

They love to talk about, write, draw, and read about anything that has to do with science. My little scientist love hands-on activities. I have noticed that building, problem-solving, and designing are some of their favorite things to do in my classroom.

My Project

Science and Engineering are so important for young children.

Having these Design & Building Sets will help my young scientists to make connections to the real world.

They will love using the dry erase blue print boards to design bridges, houses, and vehicles.

My students are crazy for STEM! They absolutely love designing and building models like real engineers. They especially love when I present them with Design Challenges. It really gives them the opportunity to be creative and hands on. These materials will encourage even my littlest scientists to talk, draw, and build whatever it is that interests them.
