Mrs. Narine from Brooklyn NY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Little Engineers

My students need engineering blueprint tools to draft their amazing ideas for design.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our school is a Pre-K through grade 5 community and Title I school servicing children predominantly from a Housing Development in Brooklyn.

We focus on providing STEM instruction in all academic subjects to foster collaboration, creativity, communication, and critical thinking.

Our curriculum centers around Project-based and service learning experiences. We encourage our students to be tinkers and thinkers as they create, design and find solutions to various problems. As a school of choice, we aim to provide students with 21st Century skills that incorporates global awareness and civic citizenship.

My Project

Students know lots of fairy tales. But when they can apply civil engineering techniques of design and creativity to items from these tales, learning is solidified. The purchase of these items is one opportunity for students to use the Engineering Design Process as they engage in various challenges. As students are challenged to design a bridge with specific dimensions to span an area, they are applying concepts taught in Mathematics. When they are challenged to design a chair to withstand the weight of an object, they will apply critical thinking skills. Three houses for the little pigs - now comparative judgement comes into play.
