My Students

My students are creators, innovators, and collaborators. They come to school ready to learn, and they learn the most through hands-on experiences.

These students are our future engineers, doctors, teachers, mechanics, and politicians.

Students participating in collaborative, hands-on learning prepares them for college, work, and life.

My school is close to 50% free and reduced lunch. My students are excited, energized, and eager to learn. They love learning and laughing. They are self-motivated and are extremely proud of their learning.

My Project

The STEM bins and games will bring excitement and engagement to our daily lessons. They also give students opportunities to practice 21st Century skills: collaboration, cooperation, creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving.

The STEM bins and the games will all be used as a way to encourage participation, teamwork, and healthy competition.

The STEM bins will be used weekly as a way to soften the transition into class. Whereas the games will be brought out on special occasions to get students pumped up, energized, and engaged in the content. Students remember content better when engaged, interested, and moving. These giant games will be a surprise addition to the work we're doing in class!
