My Students

This year I will be introducing a STEAM program for​ our school. As a teacher in a low-income, high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. All of our students receive free breakfast and 90% receive free or reduced-price lunch. Most of my students come from low-income homes and the reading gap starts early because of health problems at birth that slow cognitive, social, and emotional development.

Storage of our lego sets has become a difficult challenge.

We need containers that have covers and are light enough to pick up by our smallest STEAMers.

My Project

This year we were fortunate enough to receive a large shipment of Legos for our STEAM Makerspace. The problem is how to store this Legos after the boxes are open.

Legos are an expensive tool in our Makerspace and we need to take care of them.

Storage boxes are a necessity.

Storage boxes will make it nice for passing out materials and cleaning up when Makerspace time is over. These boxes will be put to good use and insure that our Legos are returned to a safe spot each time they are used. Lego storage is a must for a well organized Makerspace.
