For most of my students, school offers structure, safety, food, and other things many take for granted. As a Title I school (95% of our students receive free or reduced-cost lunch) with an English Language Learner population of 95% in an bustling neighborhood, these needs are more important than ever. In addition to basic needs, school should offer engaging and meaningful opportunities in learning. Finding the funds and time to gather supplies to create these opportunities can be consuming, but these students deserve it.
Despite the disadvantages these students are dealt, they are some of the brightest, kindest, and hard-working kids around.
Despite learning disabilities, socioeconomic backgrounds, and language barriers, they work hard to achieve their academic and interpersonal goals and find success. But these students and their teachers do need help. Any tool or project to keep these students interested and motivated is crucial.
Earlier this year, our district offered to supply us with the tools needed to have a STEM day at our site. It was a hit! Student engagement was at an all-time high. There was collaboration, creativity, and fun! Ever since, Cambridge has dreamed of having a space on campus where students can have STEAM sessions every week! We have a classroom cleared out and ready to be filled with all of these tool kits, art supplies, and building materials
This project will ensure our entire school will have a safe, constructive environment to support skills of teamwork, innovation, and critical thinking!
The tools chosen include Ovobots and Snap Circuits! We hope to give our students an interactive and hands-on experience with electronics and coding. This project includes opportunities to experiment and explore with concepts like cause and effect. Over all, these tools have these students excited and ready to learn!
