My Students

I am a teacher at an public school that services predominately minority and low socioeconomic students. I teach the ETK class, which is an Extended Transitional Kindergarten made up of 4 and 5-year-olds. I come to school each day looking forward to teaching and learning from my students.

I have an imaginative and curious group of students, who love learning and building.

My budding engineers will create structures, bridges, vehicles, and anything else that tickles their imaginations (including a helicopter for superheroes).

My Project

My 4 to 5 year old students love to play and build. I need tools that will help me lay these foundational STEM skills but entice my students with "fun toys" that teach. The Design & Build Engineering Centers will allow my students to practice their building skills and the Design & Play STEAM Kits will enable my students to engineer their own vehicle.

The Design & Build Engineering Centers and the Design & Play STEAM Kits will help me instruct and foster my students' love of learning and playing.

By donating to our project, you can help me engage my young engineers on their road to success.
