My students come from diverse cultural and economic backgrounds. Despite language barriers and experiences, they are always ready to learn and to broaden their skill sets. We are a tiny school in an urban area, where it's often difficult to find funding for the things that will really take our students' learning to new heights.
Our community wants to see our students learn and grow and to give them as many opportunities as possible to gain new experiences, to explore science and technology, and to truly develop 21st-century skills.
While plastic bins and a storage carts/shelves aren't the most exciting materials in the world, they will go a long way to make our STEM Studio vision come to fruition in an organized, functional manner.
"Findability precedes usability; You can't use what you can't find"- Unknown.
While we have some amazing resources to include in our STEM Studio, they aren't getting used like they should. We are lacking a way to store everything so that the kids can actually use it. The plastic bins and polyester baskets will help store some of our STEM materials. From our robots and action cameras to our paints, batteries, and arts and crafts, we need a place for all of our stuff in order to create the STEM Studio we so desire. I really want to see this space transform into something functional, organized, and amazing. These items will help us get started.
