Mrs. Keeling from Stoneboro PA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Full STEAM Ahead!

My students need opportunities to use their hands to create and flexible seating as they learn!

My Students

Over half of the students in my school receive a free or reduced lunch. They come from a variety of backgrounds, but they all have one thing in common; they have a desire to be engaged in their learning. We are a rural school with our share of challenges but our teachers continually put these kids first.

We are endeavoring to create makers--makers of new things, makers of connections, and makers of the next big thing!

Every child I know is proud to show off something they've just made or something they've used their imagination to create!

My Project

I will be using these items as part of an after-school STEAM club for our students. It will be called Club 212 (212 is the extra degree to make water boil). We have never had any after-school clubs for our elementary students but I'm hoping to foster a new community within this group. I will be volunteering my time and team up with students from the local city college to make the best possible learning opportunities.

I am requesting Osmo Kits to go with the four Osmo bases we already have in my room and the MakeDo kits for additional pieces.

I would also like our students to explore amusement park rides and dig deeper into how they work. The K'NEX sets are durable and provide the opportunity for students to learn about motors, gears, wheels, etc. The flexible seating stools will benefit our students who find it difficult to sit in a regular chair.

The thing I am most looking forward to is seeing our students engaged after the school day! I am also hoping they will make new friends, collaborate, and find they have more in common than they think.
