My Students

Today's students are tomorrow's leaders. I believe my students can make a difference. I need materials to help teach 21st-century science and technology skills. Despite high-crime neighborhoods and economic challenges my students face, they are determined to follow their dreams. I need supplies to setup a Maker Space in my classroom.

My science lab provides hands-on learning that turns ideas into adventures through the world of science.

We lack materials needed. My students will be able to explore and learn by creating their own designs in the Maker Space Station which incorporating STEM skills. Engaging in students in challenge base learning, experimenting, writing and creating new innovative solutions.

To help my students have brighter future I need materials to assist them in their projects and to teach them science and mathematic concepts having Maker Space center will help engage my students.

My Project

By having a Makerspace in my classroom students will have designated area to create, build, design and make their innovative ideas come to life. Having a Maker Space Mobile cart full of supplies will provide an opportunities for my students to use their imagination and develop skills and talents.

Maker Spaces help students master STEM skills and make them productive innovative thinkers.

Children should engage in tinkering and making because they are powerful ways for kids to learn. Making allows students to learn through the engineering process of new technological materials, expanded opportunities, learning through firsthand experience, and the basic human impulse to create. It offers the potential to make classrooms more child-centered: relevant and more sensitive to each child's remarkable capacity for intensity.
