Mrs. Karantais from Brooklyn NY is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Our STEAM LAB Create!

Help me give my students the ability to create. We do many STEAM challenges and everyday essentials such as tape, Velcro and rubber bands are always used.

My Students

My students are a fun, vibrant group of learners. This is our first year doing STEAM in Pre-k and Kindergarten. They will be able to use their imaginations and creativity to explore different methods to solve day to day problems.

Each day is a new learning experience for them and they all look forward to it.

Each child comes in daily with so much enthusiasm and energy. Being able to collaborate freely with their peers helps each child grow as a learner and a leader.

My Project

Steam challenges are a fun and exciting way to incorporate a little of everything into one lesson. My students enjoy every minute of their time in the STEAM lab. Unfortunately, supplies such as tape and Velcro run out quickly. Being able to have the supplies on hand makes it easier to broaden the kinds of challenges I can do with all the students. Not having what is needed limits their experiences. Help me give them the resources they need in order to learn science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics in a fun hands-on environment with no restrictions to their imagination!
