My Students

My elementary school is K through 6th with about 700 students. About 1/3 of the students are free/reduced lunch, 25% of the population is ESE, and many more are on MTSS leveled intervention services. We do not receive Title 1 funding, but our staff and parents are very dedicated and caring, often providing for students' needs out of their own pockets.

My K-6 gifted students love to use their creative and critical thinking skills to design new things.

These students enjoy applying principles of architecture, engineering, and physics combined with art.

I want my groups of students to have more resources available to them to be able to create their own project designs. We have some kits available to use, but not nearly enough for the groups to create projects that are on-going.

My Project

My gifted students meet together daily, but only for a short period of time. They love to create and build things and then test their projects to incorporate improvements. Our class needs more project-based building materials in order for all students to be able to participate in these on-going creative projects.

With these open-ended building sets, my classes will be able to invent and test projects that are only limited by their wild imaginations.

Purchasing additional building materials will enable my students to keep their projects together for several classes to test ideas for improvements. Learning gains are made with an emphasis on creative and critical thinking.
