Mrs. Schmidt from Eatonton GA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

STEM in the Classroom

My students need a variety of STEM tools to help them build and create!

  • $535 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I teach in a low income school district in Georgia where more than 85% of my students receive free and reduced lunch. My students are faced with several challenges, both in and out of the classroom, as they come from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds. Despite the challenges they face, they come to school ready and excited to learn.

I am looking to activate their learning and provide the students with creative and meaningful hands-on experiences through STEM activities.

My students love to create and experiment with different STEM materials. STEM activities allow my students to express themselves and grow together as a class.

My Project

The STEM materials I am requesting will allow my students to become critical thinkers, expose them to science and engineering vocabulary, and will lead them to become the next generation of innovators. By exposing my students to STEM and giving them opportunities to explore STEM-related concepts, they will develop a passion for it and potentially pursue a job in a STEM field. A curriculum that is STEM-based has real-life situations to help students learn.

STEM activities can help bridge the gender, ethnic, and socioeconomic gaps we often find in science and math.

STEM allows all students to be exposed to hands-on, active learning.

Some of the items like the K'Nex, the Legos, and the Zoob builders will help them learn by actively creating physical structures. While some of the items like the Gravity Maze Marble set, the Space Building set, and the IQ Builder set will expose the students to more logical thinking. I know each item will be utilized and my students will be able to create and learn from each one of them.
