Explore, Research, and Build: Books for Creators, Makers, and Doers
Help me give my students a STEM Lab Library full of books that build their skills and inspire them to explore, research, and create!
I teach English language development and STEM Education at a Title 1 elementary school in Hillsborough, North Carolina. My students come to school eager to learn, especially when they are able to engage in engineering and hands-on science.
Through experiential learning and collaboration, my students solve problems and build language skills at the same time.
My students inspire me to find innovative approaches that build their understanding of curriculum and support their understanding of themselves as change makers in the school community and beyond. The future is bright!
Our school's Discovery Lab is a STEM Lab that supports creating, making, and doing. Moving into its fourth year, students are becoming more confident in their ability to engineer solutions to real world problems.
We would like to provide students with "how-to" reference books and biographies of scientists, inventors, engineers, and mathematicians, so that they can continually experience and see themselves in these roles.
To ensure that we are reaching all students' interests, the reference books offer ideas for a wide range of maker projects, including: electronics, cardboard building, green design, and music exploration. Similarly, the requested biographies highlight the lives of a diverse group of STEM heroes, including Katherine Johnson, Louis Braille, Emily Roebling, Will Allen, and Temple Grandin, to name a few.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
