My students need hands-on STEM materials in order to deepen their understanding of engineering and increase their opportunities for long term success in STEM fields. Our scholars come from very low socioeconomic backgrounds.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are dreamers, scientists, and artists. All they need are the tools to expand their minds and they will reach the distance. My goal is to prepare them for the 21st century world ahead of them. That means they must be provided with opportunities to develop their creativity, collaboration skills, resourcefulness, and technological sophistication.
My scholars battle socioeconomic challenges and a serious lack of resources.
Moreover, most of the district is on free or reduced lunch. Nevertheless, while the roads may be bumpy, with strong academic opportunities, dedication, and support, these brilliant minds will prosper far beyond their current circumstances.
The hands-on STEM materials will provide scholars with opportunities to deepen their understanding of engineering through meaningful tinkering. These include a chain-effect activity, magnetic blocks, and a maze activity. Our scholars come from very low-socioeconomic backgrounds in the city of Cleveland. Many of their families are unable to provide them with high quality educational opportunities outside of school.
I believe that I have the power to combat their lack of resources by providing them with hands-on opportunities to deepen their knowledge and extend their thinking beyond the walls of our classroom.
Please help support our efforts to combat socioeconomic inequalities and strengthen the future of STEM fields.
