Let's Make Something

Help me give my students the materials to embrace their inner maker and design products using motors and other consumable craft supplies like tissue paper, pipe cleaners, and liquid glue.

My Students

My students like to spend their free time scouring videos for tutorials on how to make or do the things that interest them. I want to channel that interest and desire to support their learning of the core content. Empowering students to make something doesn't just belong once school work is done, it is vital to building critical thinking skills, fine motor skills, and making connections between school and the real world.

My students are eager to embrace their inner maker and beg for time to create.

They have a strong desire to tinker and make things that are​ not being met at home and the materials here will help set the foundation for the makerspace we are attempting to create for our students. We are a Title I school, so my students don't have access to these resources at home.

My Project

Students in grades K-5 use the space to participate in STEM lessons as well as to design visual products based on their on-going classroom projects.

If this project is fully funded, we will make robots and other projects the students decide to create using materials like glue, pipe cleaners, cotton balls, and tissue paper to bring their creative ideas to life.

​They will use the motors and batteries to create squiggle bots as they are introduced to the world of robotics.

Having access to a variety of consumable materials will help students find their creativity and inspire them to design and build projects to enhance the classroom curriculum while in the makerspace.
