STEM is the Word!

Help me give my students STEM activities and materials for hands on learning opportunities

My Students

My students are amazing. They are a diverse group of learners with may abilities. My students are motivated learners who enjoy learning new things.

My students are kind, caring learners who love life.

Our school is a warm and welcome place for students. Students enjoy a rigorous learning environment that is also fun. Our school is diverse and provides a safe environment for students. Our school is a close community made up of awesome kids, loving staff, and amazing parents.

My Project

As a technology teacher, I enjoy exposing my students to a large variety of projects. I am wanting these STEM materials to create a makers space in my classroom. These materials will offer students opportunities to build with hands on materials. I will use these as part of stations several times a month. They will also act as a great activity as students finish computer projects early. These materials will allow me to provide engaging activities that strengthen critical thinking skills and problem solving skills. These will expose my kids to different hands on activities and help me introduce them to new career paths!
