My students need Keva blocks, Little Bits, Magna Blocks, Little Bits, and Ozobots to help them create, design, code, and build.
The students in my school come from very diverse ethnic and economic backgrounds. We have a large number of bilingual students, as well as a fair number of students with special needs. Many come from single-parent homes as well as a few from military families. Approximately 57% of the school population is on free or reduced-cost lunch.
My students need a chance to express themselves creatively while learning about science, engineering, technology, and art.
I work with students from preschool through sixth grade. There is nothing like seeing them shine when they have created something all by themselves!
Being the first STEM school in our district, my students really need supplies that allow students to delve into STEM careers, including mechanical, electrical, and chemical engineering; mathematics; architecture; computer programming and coding; and robotics. With the current emphasis on standardized testing in the United States, too many schools are leaving out science.
Having a well-stocked makerspace will gaive my students the confidence to take risks and discover new passions.They will learn to tackle problems, imagine solutions, and improve on their ideas.
The Keva Blocks and Magna Blocks will encourage them to engineer structures while exploring basic physics. The Little Bits and Ozobots will introduce them to coding, and allow them to problem solve while creating interactive inventions.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
