STEM For My Students

My students need the STEM Bundle to provide them hands-on learning.

My Students

I teach in a Title One school on the border between Arizona, California, and Mexico. My students are fourth, fifth, and sixth graders who are eager to learn! I am privileged to teach science and engineering, which is my passion.

My students love doing hands-on STEM projects!

I enjoy facilitating and watching my students use the scientific method and engineering design process in my class. They have created models of knee braces, levees, prosthetic limbs, membranes, and solar ovens. They have experimented with different incline angles, types of bridges, and paper airplanes.

My Project

The materials that I am hoping to get will allow my fourth, fifth, and sixth graders to do hands-on activities involving science, technology, engineering, and math. The students will learn by doing and see science concepts in action.

My students will learn about STEM careers and real-world connections, and will investigate forces and motion, electromagnetism, and engineering.

This will help my students to learn the science standards in an interesting way, and they will have fun while learning. These kinds of experiences help to generate interest in science and engineering fields, and may motivate them to choose STEM careers in the future!
