Teacher Corbett from Oakland CA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Self-A-STEAM & Wellness Space For Girls

My students need these kitchen and home materials so that they can experience health and wealth promoting workshops that are intended to expose them to the importance of life work balance that encourages health and wellness in technological spaces.

My Students

My student population is comprised of African American girls in grade K-5, who are eligible for free lunch. In light of institutional and social inequity such as racial and gender bias, our female scholars are amazing and determined to make a difference in their own lives, and in the lives of others (community).

It Takes A Village:

Their individual and collective set of experiences is uniquely tied to self-determination and ambition. Our girls and young women scholars exhibit mid to high levels of interest in being present, ready, and finding accomplishment in academic settings.

AAFAI (the African American Female Achievement Initiative) was designed to promote and facilitate best practices yielding favorable outcomes through enrichment workshops for girls and young women to engage the classroom environment with lots of excitement and great learning opportunities that prepare them for their individual and collective future.

My Project

These materials are essential to the implementation of the Self-A-STEAM & Wellness Space For Girls Workshop Cafe series for K-5th grade girl students in my STEAM class (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics). For example, I plan to utilize the juicer machine, blender and prep materials such as the cutting board, knives, and container bowls for our "Tech Cafe."

Exposure to STEAM is Key To Girls Learning and Doing:

In this STEAM space young girl scholars will have the advantage of engaging food science as they learn about various nutrients fruits and vegetables provide to the body and mind, which ultimately influences academic performance. The goal is to link healthy food choice to productive school and work life.

My students will have the opportunity to engage in creative technological activities, while ingesting healthy nutrients from fresh vegetable and fruit juices, and smoothies as a healthy food option all throughout the Self-A-STEAM & Wellness Space For Girls Workshop Cafe series.

The layout of this workshop cafe will include four workstations, allowing participants to rotate to each STEAM station to creatively explore, positively engage while they gain empowerment in mastering STEAM. The four workstations will include the follow workstations:

1. The Science of Juicing and Blending

2. Technical Sewing & Design for Tech Girls

3. 3D Design & Printing

4. Self-Care space

Workstation number four is design to provide the opportunity to learn what it means to chill and engage reflective practices, such as journaling, peer share dialoging, pampering themselves using nail art, and knitting/crocheting as a form of mediation or relaxing.

When You Know Better, You Do Better: Providing Quality and Meaningful Learning Opportunities for Girls. My goal is to encourage dietary wellness in this Technology work space. The girl-focused work space is purposed to inspire creative expression and wellness.
