Snapping It Up in the Library Media Center

My Students

I am in a California inner-city Pre-K-5 public elementary school. Our student population is a mixture of diverse ethnic groups with the majority of Asian descent. Most students are first generation born with ninety-four percent of our students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunches. Sixty-seven percent of our English language learner student population is basic or below basic in reading and comprehension. Our program includes Chinese bilingual classes as well as regular general education classes for native and non-native English speakers.

My Project

Students are no longer coming into the library media center as passive patrons. They are coming in as engineers, architects, scientists and/or as creators.

The donations for this project will provide an excellent extension of our STEM curriculum that encourages and provides opportunity for problem solving, following self interest, build self confidence and collaboration amongst students,

Snap circuits specifically makes learning electronics easy and fun! My students, at all levels of learners novice to more experienced, would enjoy hours of educational fun while learning about electronics.

The library Media Center should have a variety of resources in addition to print materials. Snap circuits encourage discovery at his/her own pace.
