Every morning I open my door to students of different ethnicities, socioeconomic status, and many other diverse factors. However, one commonality is that all of my students walk into my classroom ready to learn. I teach at a Title I campus, where more than half of my students live below the poverty line and speak English as a second language. It is challenging but rewarding. It is my responsibility that these labels don't define my scholars, but instead become a barrier they break as I grant them opportunities that extends far beyond the classroom.
EiE is an excellent inquiry-based, STEM curriculum for use during our after school meetings at our campus. Teaching students thinking and reasoning skills needed for success. Built around the engineering design process, EiE teaches kids how to solve problems systematically. Women are underrepresented in the STEM field and I want to start now exposing my students to inquiry-based activities. This one kit will allow up to 24 young girls to discover the STEM world hands on right inside the classroom! Hopefully, by giving my students an opportunity to engage in an EIE kit, it'll spark an interest that'll last a lifetime.
