Ms. Tiffany from Carbondale CO is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Developing Next Gen Scientists and Engineers

Help me give my students more hands-on engineering materials for morning tub time and science materials for the science table. We need gravel and test tubes for our table. We need Smart Max Flower Palace, Lego's, and Gears.

My Students

My students are wonderful, expressive, creative individuals, who come from a variety of home environments. The students in my classroom are mostly second language learners, coming to school with very little exposure to the English language. Our school population is mostly Latino, ESL, low-income students who are thrilled to have the chance to learn and participate in the classroom environment. The students are active participants in a positive school environment that encourages all students to succeed, and they are held to a high level of standards.

My Project

I want my students to have an opportunity to get their brains thinking through Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math throughout their school day.

Our classroom should be a fun hands-on learning environment that will spark student innovation.

Student's will be able to build & create with the SmartMax Flower Set. Students will be able to imagine & design with Gears, Lego Set/People, & Magna Tiles. Students will be able to practice being scientist with the test tubes and use gravel for the scale. There will be so many possibilities with the materials on the list to encourage students to be thinkers.

Providing an opportunity to engage in STEAM learning at the start of the school day will give my students time to create and imagine with their classmates. The bonus is that oral language will be encouraged, as they problem solve through different activities, giving them an opportunity to be engineers and scientists!
