Jiminy Cricut, We're Creating for STEAM!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Help our third graders explore STEAM activities, practice engineering, and explore their creativity.

Our third-grade students love to explore the world around them, they love to solve real world problems, and they love to learn.

Our students focus on creating classroom communities and fostering an atmosphere of acceptance. They love to work cooperatively with partners, in small groups, and as a whole group to explore real world problems and use engineering concepts to solve them. Our students love to practice coding using robotics.

My Project

My students love to explore STEAM through comprehensive projects. A Cricut Explore Air 2 will allow students to work in Design Space to create in a variety of formats for their presentations.

Students will gain a deeper understanding of technology, engineering, and design through exploring their creativity with the Cricut.

Students will be excited by the technology, and inspired to incorporate art and graphic design into their presentations.

The machine will be used throughout the year, and especially when designing our Lego Robotics presentations. Students will be able to collaborate and create innovative displays that demonstrate and share their learning.
