Teaching with STEM (Science/Technology/Engineering/Math)
My students need more STEM supplies, kits, and stations for science exploration.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My kindergarten students are extremely curious about the world around them. In our classroom we have scheduled time for exploration and hands-on problem solving to create a love for discovery and learning.
I have a class of 20 kindergarten students who are driven by exploration and hands-on experiences.
They have a natural love of discovery, and my goal is to help foster and nurture that excitement in learning. Students learn best through application of the skills they are learning, and love working through hands-on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education.
Students are constantly asking when will they get time to work with the STEM materials we currently have in class. With these new STEM materials, students will have more options when they choose what they would like to work on. I will also be able to rotate materials through different centers for students to work with so they have opportunities to creatively solve more problems throughout the year.
These materials will assist my students with their independent learning and discovery of real world applications of STEM content skills.
These STEM supplies, kits, and stations are able to be used by students without a lot of guidance by an adult, providing me with time to work with students individually or in small groups while everyone is actively engaged in a learning experience.
