My Students

My school is located in a low-income neighborhood with limited resources. My students are all diagnosed with autism with varying cognitive levels and language skills. Most of them are English language learners that come from diverse family backgrounds. Most of the families in my class are single income earners and have limited resources. Most of them do not have computers and internet at home and it is only in school they are able to access such. I have 4 iPad tablets that I use in class, but this is not enough.

I want to create STEM centers that I can incorporate during Math and Science to give my students the opportunity to be exposed to STEM activities.

My Project

There's a lot of talk about STEM instruction these days, but somehow my students are lacking in this opportunity as we are limited with the resources that we have. A lot of our resources are outdated books that do not help them understand what STEM activities are all about.

Creating this STEM Center will give my students the opportunity to do simple but functional STEM activities that they can apply in real life.

I have requested a STEM Science Station, a bridge building center, a real-world STEM challenges kit, and coding activities.

My students will have the opportunity to do practical things with their hands with this STEM Center. I want my students to have the chance to be able to practice skills that they can translate to real life.
