My Students

My students are future scientists, tech innovators, engineers, artists, and mathematicians who are eager to change the world. They are critical thinkers and hands on learners who are eager to learn how to solve the problems of tomorrow.

We are a Title I school filled with students who are eager to take ownership of their learning and build 21st-century skills.

My students are passionate about learning and your donation will make it possible for them to solve real-world problems through critical thinking and design processes.

My Project

STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math, but what STEM education focuses on is much more than these subjects. The focus of STEM education is how these subjects relate to each other and the real world.

STEAM toys encourage kids to develop skills in the core disciplines of science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics.

These materials will help students practice critical thinking skills and practice engineering principles though play. Coding, circuits, energy transfer, and many more skills don's seem as daunting when practiced through games. This Snap Circuits kits gives students a fun, hands-on introduction to how electrical circuits work to run everyday electronic devices. They'll also gain valuable lessons in building, following instructions, and how electricity, magnets, and alternative energy work. The ZOOB BuilderZ S.T.E.M. Challenge gives students the tools they need to design and build creations to solve challenges. These games will build skills and confidence in my students while preparing them for the challenges ahead.
