Succeeding With STEM: Science Labs

My students need hands-on STEM activities to stimulate their critical thinking and problem-solving skills!

My Students

My gifted students don't like to sit still. They like to explore, ask questions, and figure things out on their own. STEM projects allow them to explore Science concepts hands-on and give them an opportunity follow directions and solve problems without guidance. They love independent learning

My students are high poverty at a Title I school, but that doesn't define them!

They have a high IQ and an inquisitive mind but, because of their socioeconomic circumstances, they don't get the exposure they need to meet their learning needs. Gifted students are fast learners who use critical thinking and creative problem-solving to meet challenges. Because they think outside the box, my students need self-directed learning opportunities with a STEM focus to keep them engaged and challenged in the classroom.

My Project

These STEM Learning Labs will allow my students to explore how gravity affects the design of a roller coaster, how to build and operate simple machines, and how to use an electric circuit and a sensor to make an alarm. They will be able to work independently, or with a partner, to follow the step-by-step directions, make observations, test their hypotheses, draw conclusions, and learn how things really work!

Your donations will give my students the opportunity to explore Science concepts and become academically competitive with STEM curriculum.

Please help us purchase these Learning Labs and invest in the future of our most brilliant students!
