My Students

I teach technology and STEAM to 1st through 6th graders in two different schools. I often take materials from one building to the next so my students can experience a variety of manipulatives. My students are creative, problem solving, highly interactive individuals. They love to socialize and work on projects together. They love hands-on activities where they can see the outcome of their work. My students thrive on engaging, rigorous activities. Both schools would benefit from this project. Please consider donating to this wonderful group of kids.

My Project

Makey Makey kits help students understand the world of electricity, conductors and creativity. Students love to experiment through play, even the older kids (us teachers!). This project will give students real life experiences and also the fun and excitement of creating something new. Makey Makey kits are boards with metal holes that you connect to everyday objects. You can play a game using playdough or play the piano with bananas. The ideas are endless. They can play games, make music, solve problems and more with these tools. What is a better way to help students be creative, inventive, and enjoy what they are doing? Please consider donating!
