STEM Starts With Planning!

Help me give my students the ability to conduct STEM hands-on activities on a table that will allow them to plan, draw, and conduct experiments on the same surface.

My Students

I feel so fortunate to teach an amazing and diverse group of students. They come from varying socioeconomic backgrounds and have a wide range of abilities. I’m proud to be their teacher, as I get to observe their daily drive to be persistent, overcome adversity and maintain a strong desire to learn. These students benefit from having multiple modalities in order to learn.

We learn through music, movement, technology, direct instruction, group activities, and hands-on experiences.

I hope to give them varying learning experiences that can span across all areas of the curriculum and teach the whole child.

My Project

Give my students the opportunity to work in small group on STEM projects and science experiments. Students need a stable surface which allows them to write out the plan for the project or experiment, create a technical drawing, and actually perform the experiment, and project.

Having a Whiteboard Surfaced Table allows students to effectively go through the entire scientific process using only one surface area to plan and conduct experiments without using multiple papers, and clutter that risk getting in the way of real time learning.

Students would be allowed to get all of their thinking out, collaborate with one another, and get to creating without having to stop!
