My Students

Our school/class is made of students who come to us with a variety of backgrounds, stories, and their own personal struggles. Our class is made up of all students learning at all different levels in their own unique ways! However we all share the same goal—to always be the best we can be. We all know that the most important thing is to never stop believing in ourselves! My students come from a variety of different family backgrounds, cultures, and traditions! Here at our school, our Roadrunners always strive to succeed! We need the proper tools to prepare us to be the leaders of tomorrow! By providing materials and tools to students to learn through hands-on activities, it empowers them to take charge of their own learning! Our classroom is one that fosters creativity, independent thinking, problem solving, and thinking out of the box!

My Project

By allowing students to use hands-on materials to create STEM projects, it will allow them to use problem-solving strategies to build and create new things! STEM activities allow students to be creative, think out of the box, and be engineers!

STEM resources increase critical thinking skills and give all students a hands-on learning experience.

We will use the STEM kits in coordination with our new hands-on Engineering Science curriculum, which teaches students the engineering design process and how to build things to solve various real-life problem solving! STEM activities reinforce engineering vocabulary and concepts such as criteria, constraints, and desired objectives. Hands-on STEM projects support cooperative teamwork and creative thinking. Most importantly, these exciting and motivating resources and activities appeal to ALL kinds of learners in the classroom and allow each and every student the opportunity to shine in their own way!
