Ms. Hornof from Chicago IL is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Science to the Core-Lego 2.0

Help me give my students Legos 2.0. My students get bored with our science curriculum as we have little to no hands-on materials.

My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, with a hunger to learn, and excited for what they will discover on their own for the day. I ask them, "What do you want to learn?" because I want them to know their hunger will be satisfied. I like my students to know they are in charge of their learning and have the ability to do anything they set their mind to.

I teach in an urban, low socio-economic area.

All of my students receive free lunch. My students are humble and enthusiastic about learning. They don't have much sometimes at home, but they would give you anything they had to offer. They love school and they love the safe environment school provides for them.

Many of my students sign up for after school programs, in which they are selected by lottery. Despite language barriers, financial status, limited technology available at home and a highly populated school, my students still show a desire to learn and do their best.

My Project

My students are very curious and love science. They get bored with our science curriculum as we have little to no hands-on materials. WeDo Lego 2.0 will allow for my students to be actively involved in learning about simple machines and how things work by building their own machines that work.

My students are actively engaged and enthusiastic about learning when they are provided with the opportunity to explore with their hands.

The love of learning is sparked and their motivation pushes them to success and drives their growth mindset. Before they realize it they have mastered a new goal and have the ability to explain their new machine and how it works to others. Thus, also enhancing their communication skills at the same time!
