STEM Enriched Science Classroom

Help me give my students STEM activities to expose them to diverse learning and facilitate the needs of my special needs students. The model of Mitosis will help students to understand the process much better.

My Students

I am a science teacher in a Title I school that serves students receiving free and reduced lunch. My school is located in a district where the majority of students come from a low-income/high poverty area. They are faced with many challenges both in and out of the classroom. Due to these challenges, I work diligently to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences that will spark their love of learning by discovering the fabulous world of science.

Help me to provide my students with a STEM enriched Science classroom.

My students want to learn. In my inclusion class, many students come with a big learning gap and a large number of diverse needs. Many of them are visual learners and thrive with hands-on-activities.

My Project

At times, it is difficult to find lab and project materials for our students to engage with inquiry content. I believe that students benefit more from hands-on-activities and the ability to create models and conduct experiments,

STEM education provides students with skills that they can use in the real world.

STEM motivates students to learn and to apply knowledge to new and novel tasks. My students will thrive with these STEM activities. I can't wait to help students get their hands-on these activities this year and really explore the world of science!
