TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
Help me give my students the supplies we need to build a mobile makerspace for students to complete STEM-rich activities in their classroom. Combining robotics and maker education provides our students with incredibly engaging experiences every day!
We are a transient Title I school in Virginia with 700 students in pre-k through 5th grade. We make a point of involving our students in developing their own learning pathways. They consistently ask for more of what our dedicated teachers already focus on - integrating STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) into their daily instruction. My particular focus is on math and science integration through design thinking. We have been creating a Makerspace where kids can learn through dynamic, hands-on-learning lessons. This allows our students to invent, explore, compose, and create as they learn the content. We are always looking for ways to provide opportunities for our students to celebrate our diverse population and for families to be involved in their child's learning.
Through the generosity of donors on this site, the integration of simple materials has begun to enhance our students' school experience, eliminating economic barriers and allowing all children access to the 21st century skills needed to be successful in their future.
Every child is a maker at heart! We just need to provide them with the space and the supplies they need to invent and learn. Makerspaces provide hands-on, creative opportunities for teachers to encourage their students to design, experiment, and build. Our students are more deeply engaged in science and math when they are given the chance to use the design thinking process to solve problems. We support a diverse population's learning needs by giving them many opportunities to participate in engineering and tinkering activities.
We want to provide our students with many of the opportunities to create, design, and learn with their peers.
These supplies will help our students complete independent and collaborative projects that will often be based on their own interests. Several of the teacher-guided projects will celebrate the diversity in our community while integrating technology and maker education into the curriculum.
