Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Project

Our school is a Title I school with over 60% of our population is on free or reduced lunch. Our science curriculum aligns with NGSS, and these additional STEM programs will support our curriculum by integrating science, math, art, technology, and engineering into several projects. Students will use materials such as coffee filters, shower curtains, craft sticks, marbles, glue sticks, LEGOs, K'nex, notebooks, boxes, paper towel rolls, wax paper, pipe cleaners, pool noodles, etc. to create projects that target global issues such as wind energy, parachute usage and insect control while aligning to the engineering and design process.

Students will plan, design, and present their projects while using creative materials that are found in our world to help solve some global issues we are facing today.
