Hands On STEAM Learning

My students need to learn coding with Ozobots and slinkys to learn about waves.

My Students

Science should be fun and science should be challenging. Science must be taught in such a way that students from a lifelong love of the subject matter, and, hopefully, pursue a career in the science field. I teach seventh-grade science at a magnet middle school in a downtown urban area. I have 103 diverse learners who are taught using a hands-on, inquiry-based science curriculum.

My students are diverse.

Our school has many nationalities represented. My students are high achieving and from various different economic backgrounds. Our school is considered a school of need according to the number of students who qualify financially for free lunch programs.

Some students come to school hungry and are not truly concerned with what we have to teach them because they are overwhelmed by the thoughts of where their next meal may come from. Other students question if we actually have something to teach them that will truly make a difference in their lives. Still others wonder if learning can truly be fun.

My Project

Our school is a STEAM based school, but we still need supplies to expose our students to new types of learning. My goal is to increase our efforts to get students at our school to pursue computer science and other STEM-related fields. Students will participate in teams to build their own programs and projects, all while learning about programming, coding, and engineering.

Engineering and coding is the future of our society.

This project will better prepare my students for that reality. Ozobots are miniature robots that help students learn about coding through play! I am requesting additional Ozobots kits with the needed markers and stickers needed to program the robots. I am also requesting several slinkys that will allow my students the opportunity to learn how to build, create, and collaborate waves and their properties with their classmates while using their hands.
