Mr. Evans from Las Cruces NM is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

From Brain to Hand

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

The school's Engineering Program supports over 200 nontraditional STEM students. The program is approximately 95% Hispanic students. Currently, there are approximately only 10% female students in the program. While this number is small, it is rapidly expanding and we strive to get the number much higher over the next few years.Our high school has established a career readiness program in the pathway to engineering program, so that not only can students leave high school and move on to higher education, but they can also start careers that do not require a 4 year degree.

My Project

As we continue to establish our Engineering Technology program, we are now focusing in on the students that don't want to be engineers, and instead want to build things. We now have the space and commitment from leadership, all we need is the right tools to begin our goal of creating an Innovation Space, where not only do student think of solutions, but they prototype and make their solutions reality.

To do this, we will need tools, including a band saw, table saw, planer, router and drill press.

Students will also be able to use a standing desk with multiple monitors to plan and design their solution.
