Ms. Brooks from Evans CO is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Keeping the STEAM Moving

My students need rechargeable batteries to work with so many of the materials in our after-school program. We also find that chenille stems or pipe cleaners are needed often for students’ projects and challenges.

My Students

Imagine hundreds of students from all over the world. Many are here as immigrants or refugees so they speak many languages and have different cultural experiences.

Our students may be diverse, but they all share a love of project based learning.

Poverty limits many opportunities outside of school, but our school strives to provide quality experiences for our students in our after-school program with quality STEM and STEAM activities.

Our students are the future engineers and problem-solvers. They are willing to take on the future. Right now they are full of dreams and hope. We want to build on their hopes and make their dreams come true.

My Project

We have a lot of materials that require AA batteries. The cost of replacing them makes it difficult to use the materials as much as both teachers and students would like to work with them. We also need crafty items like the chenille stems. We do try to use them multiple times, but sometimes we just can’t use them a second time.

Having the power and materials readily available would make our program run smoother and keep students engaged in their projects.

It is difficult to maintain interest when their batteries are dead or they do not have materials for their work.
