My Students

My students face a lot of challenges, not only academically, but personally and socially as well. They are original thinkers and enjoy hands-on learning and activities with movement.

Our public elementary school in Indianapolis faces the daily challenge of educating and motivating students that live well within the poverty level.

Our students are very active learners. They love when we have flexible seating options, STEM projects, and a choice of tasks within their daily routine. They work best in a flexible, yet structured, environment.

My Project

Our school has been blessed with a wonderful STEM Lab. My fourth grade students use the lab frequently, but we have noticed that most of the materials are more appropriate for grades 1 to 6. There isn't much for our Pre-K class to do in the lab other than free-building with Legos and K'nex. Please help me provide some activities and resources for our Pre-K teachers to use in the STEM Lab.

With your donation, the Pre-K teachers will receive some STEM activity books geared toward age-appropriate STEM investigations.

They will also receive some folders to help with organization of ideas, a bulletin board set to help explain the design process, and some mentor text materials to read aloud to their students. Our Pre-K friends will be excited to use the cool drill activity kit which will add to the building materials that are already in the lab. Thank you for your support!
