Remote STEM Learning is Possible

Help me give my students basic supplies, including crayons, card stock, markers, other art supplies, and mailing supplies, to be able to do STEM projects at home.

My Students

Being a public school teacher in NYC, in a Title I school is a challenge itself. Trying to have my students participate in STEM-related content without supplies is nearly impossible. I was naive enough to assign a drawing contest for an Earth Day project. Students were asked to draw a poster that emphasizes the importance of Earth Day and color it in. I was saddened to see so many emails from students that they do not have basic supplies such as paper and markers. My main concern was always if a student had a device to access our e-learning, but I always assumed paper and pencils were things my students had. Many students share devices with siblings to complete their work on Google Classroom.

Not only am I concerned about students continuing to learn, but we need to focus on their emotional and mental growth during these difficult times.

How does it make a child feel being stuck at home for this long, but also not having the basic school supplies? My hope is to help make their transition to remote learning as easy as possible and support them in any way that I can.

My Project

It is already so hard for students to transfer their lives to remote learning. Students left school on a Friday with no idea that they'll never come back for the rest of the year. They never had the chance to bring home supplies they may need. Being able to mail home supplies to students will be something that would help make school a little easier.

Emotionally and mentally, these students are dealing with so much so I want to alleviate the worry about them having basic school supplies.

I want to be able to let students continue our STEM-based learning activities with paper and basic art supplies. The pandemic cannot stop these young engineers and I'll make sure that not having supplies won't stop them either. Being able to send supplies with students will allow them to create artistic designs for our future STEM projects.
