My Students

My students live in the predominately Spanish-speaking part of Washington Heights. This year, I have the privilege of serving all of the students of our PreK-5 school through a newly established gardening STEM program. 90% of our student population receives free and reduced lunches. Even though our students come from the community district with the lowest average earned income in Manhattan, they are enthusiastic, kind, curious and they love to have the opportunity to learn in and explore in our school garden.

My Project

Through having access to Little Bits and Makey Makey units my students will be provided with the opportunity to learn about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) in engaging, hands on centers. This will foster independent thinking and the meaningful application of the scientific method and the engineering and design process. I have found that students are much more engaged in learning when they are given age appropriate challenges that allow them to work in small groups. Your donations will allow more of my students to engage in this type of work by providing them with these resources which will challenge them to interface with and manipulate technologies that are akin to those that are already present in their daily lives.

Through working in small groups on engineering and design challenges these resources will help my students develop the critical scientific thinking skills they need to to solve 21st century problems.

By working with these resources my students will also learn how to work in teams to solve problems and use the design process to create new technologies. These skill are are critical for making them career and college ready.
