Ms. Webb from Oklahoma City OK is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Mission Critical SySTEM

My students need STEM kits, an engineering center, and Learn to Code file folder games to be challenged so that they may become critical thinkers and doers!

My Students

As a teacher in a low income school, I see that our students are not afforded the same meaningful learning opportunities as those who may be in a more stable financial atmosphere. Our classrooms come ill-equipped with material needed to have that hands-on, independent experience. Our students are already at a disadvantage in their neighborhoods, so I want to create a learning environment where all students thrive. I am inheriting a classroom that does not have the material students need to problem solve.

I want my students to become independent critical thinkers whose imaginations and creativity continue to grow through hands-on experiences.

My students are creative, clever, inquisitive, and eager to learn more and more daily. They love the freedom to choose and explore engaging activities that help them become successful. The materials I'm requesting will help them grow as independent learners, critical thinkers, and problem solvers and encourage exploration of material they have never seen or used.

Having materials with all the pieces and materials that can easily be manipulated will help my students on the road to success. They will be able to engage either independently or with one another as they explore and create and inquire with positive interactions.

My Project

I would love to create an opportunity for my students to build a love for learning and have a solid base for understanding key concepts. With STEM projects, I think this could happen. After reading and listening to fairy tales such as Little Red Riding Hood, engaging in a STEM-based project could greatly enhance their learning experiences and expand their knowledge base. They will be able to problem solve and create their own endings to stories.

Whether they are building, counting, or discovering the explanation of why something happens, they are optimizing learning in many ways.

House Building could be a highway to architecture. Learn to Code File Folders can enhance a skill set that students could use for a future career in a world that has a shortage of skilled coders and programmers. Coding can help students in their other subjects, too and can improve soft skills like perseverance and problem-solving. STEM creates problem-solving, critical thinking, and creativity which are skills that students need early on.
