Ms. Parton from Alexandria VA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

STEM lab

My students need a Lego set for STEM learning. STEM is the idea of using science, technology, engineering and math in projects.

My Students

My students are incredibly resilient, despite the fact that many of them come from a low income background. Everyday, my students come into my classroom with some of the brightest smiles I have every seen. I'm disappointed that I can't do as many enrichment projects with them as I would like to.

We make our class fun and exciting through the use of imagination.

However, it would be incredibly helpful to have the tools required to allow them to manipulate science as opposed to just trying to picture something abstract. I want the best for my students because they are some of the best kids I have ever met.

My Project

This project would give my students the start to a great STEM lab. My students meet with me for 45 minutes every other week for enrichment. In this time I would like to allow my students time to get to experiment through different STEM activity stations.

Legos are one of the best ways to get students thinking in a STEM mindset without them even knowing.

This project will make a major impact in my students learning by changing the way they think. By funding The Lego Duplo Mega Easy Pack you are funding future engineers! Thank you for helping my students succeed.
