TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
My students need STEM and building materials for project based learning opportunities. Our school is also seeking STEM certification, where we will need more STEM materials in our classroom.
I have an amazing group of students from various backgrounds. We live in a rural community in South Carolina. We are in a Title I school, and resources are extremely limited. Our students deserve the best learning environment regardless of their personal access to resources beyond their means.
I have 21 students in my class, 10 girls and 11 boys.
Several of my students have an ADD/ADHD diagnosis, with others having a diagnosis on the autism spectrum. Several of my students were in a self-contained behavior class last year, and this year they are integrated into the mainstream classroom.
With the variety of learning styles and abilities in my class, I am in great need of alternate learning options. My students have a great desire to learn, but sometimes their need to move or be in a different position hinders optimum learning.
It is my passion to give these students the best that I can provide for them. As a child, I had the opportunity to attend a prominent private school on scholarship. I had access to materials I would not have otherwise. These children most likely will not have those opportunities.
My students are using materials for project based learning activities where they will build anything from an animal habitat to a model of our town. Students can use the Legos, Magnet tiles, and K'nex for these activities. Many of my students are not able to complete projects at home due to financial strains, so I would love to give them the opportunities to create in our classroom.
In Science, we study force and motion where I would love to introduce the students to basic robotics and engineering.
The Hexbug and K'nex will give them opportunities to build machines they may not have exposure to otherwise.
We are beginning to have designated instructional time for STEM projects, and we need more materials to provide these experiences.
