My Students

Our school is a rural school with a high socio-economic need. My students come from extremely diverse cultural and language backgrounds, and many are the children of plantation workers who immigrated to Hawaii over the years. We are located on the beautiful Big Island of Hawaii so our outdoor environment can be an amazing classroom.

Our school has done a heroic job of becoming technologically equipped so we can focus on twentieth century learning and college readiness.

But we are not totally there, not in my classroom anyway.

My Project

My students would like and deserve to have their very own Cricut Explore cutting machine so that they can create eye catching scientific presentation boards and bulletin boards.

Please help my students get the supplies they need to become driven, productive, creative, citizens within my classroom and the larger school setting.

Help them to paint the campus with this tool and to create positive, productive and professional learning environments within the informational displays that they will create with the Cricut.

My students need Cricut machine, steam iron, paper trimmer and card stock paper to help support them and their creativity in building beautiful scientific boards, advisory boards and even T-shirts in a STEM setting.

As the science students of middle school, my students are expected to lead the way setting an example to the younger population. We love showing off our skills and projects at school STEM Nights and would love to up our game a notch or two by showing up with professional looking boards and shirts that the kids create using this tool. We struggle to get it done with the limited resources we have been presented with- budgets that barely covers the most basic of cost. Your help is needed.
