My Students

My students do not have computers so they cannot participate in remote learning. They are falling behind other students because they lack resources to access online lessons and assignments. They deserve better! Please help me provide the necessary tools to help them succeed.

My Project

Students will use the faux leather and suede materials so they can engineer jewelry and conduct science projects which are related to STEM. Sitting behind a computer all day long can take a toll on a student's mental health. This project will provide them with arts and crafts activities to do at home during the pandemic. One of my students requested the leather sheets so they can test out different elements on each of them. They tried before but couldn't complete it because they didn't have the materials. This project will equip students with the necessary items to succeed.
