My Students

My students are creative problem solvers who love to be challenged! Every day they enter our STEM classroom ready to work together to solve real-life problems.

Seeing their minds at work is truly inspiring!

Students collaborate and design a plan to solve the problem based on materials available. Instead of being discouraged if their plan does not work, they persevere and modify their plan.

Help us supply these life learners with materials they can use in our new STEM classroom!

My Project

Help students combine their love for reading with STEM. Currently we do not have any books for our new classroom. Please help us build a classroom library for kindergarten, first grade, and fifth grade students.

Students will read about real-world problems in some of these stories and design and build prototypes to solve the them!

Other books will help inspire students and teach them that mistakes are frustrating but that they are an important part of the learning and problem solving process. They will also learn about famous "mistakes" that turned into successful world structures that are still visible today.
