Motivated. Ambitious. Caring. Kind. These are just a few words that describe the students in my class. My students are enthusiastic to come to school each day and are motivated to do their best. They have ambitions to become productive, contributing citizens in society. These kids are caring and kind to their classmates, friends, family and staff. What is it that they are lacking?
While our students may be lacking in financial resources, they have the ambition and motivation to do great things in their lifetimes.
Our remote, desert school is a Title I school in which the majority of students receive free or reduced price lunch. Many of our students come from military families or homes with single parents who are struggling to make ends meet.
These materials will help the students develop critical thinking skills which are essential in life. The Magnatiles allow students to explore design in space while still using their hands, rather than sitting in front of a computer program. The Problem Solving kits encourage brainstorming and cooperation in order to be successful while solving a real-life problem.
Providing students with hands-on activities in science, technology and engineering encourages them to develop critical life skills such as planning, problem solving, and perseverance.
Being able to function in a technology based world means more than simply being able to access a computer program. Students need to be able to visualize the problem, brainstorm ideas, design and manipulate their solution, and evaluate/modify their design.
