My Students

My students attend a public school in inner city Louisville, KY. We are a STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Art Math) magnet, with a heavy focus on using project-based learning to understand the world around us. My students come from a variety of backgrounds and benefit from engaging in real-world learning experiences to fully understand new topics in Science.

In order to engage students in real-world STEAM experiences, they need access to the EiE kits.

These kits will allow students to collaborate through inquiry and fully understand the engineering process and related science, art, and math concepts 4th grade students are required to master.

My Project

This Engineering is Elementary kit will allow my 4th grade science lessons to be hands-on, learner-focused, real-world experiences. No textbooks! No PowerPoint presentations! No disengaged students!

Groups of students will work together through the engineering design process to solve real-world problems.

All students will be part of the learning process and will be able to use their own strengths to lead their group to solutions.

Students will read about a real-world problem and begin to think about ways it relates to them and how they would react. Groups will form and begin to brainstorm and plan possible solutions. Students will use writing and art skills to design a plan. Groups will use the provided materials to begin working on their design. They will use communication skills to work collaboratively on the building process. Finally, they will share and reflect on their final design using written and oral communication skills.

Shhhh! They don’t know they’re learning!
