The Description

With these funds I will...purchase Lego Education Mindstorm EV3 Core and Expansion Set Classroom Packs. It will be used for facilitating afterschool STEM classes and a Makerspace to allow students to explore and make connections to classroom content in all content areas. All tools will be available for classrooms teachers to integrate into their  daily lessons were applicable. As a Title one school, our students lack opportunities to connect instruction with real world objects and career experiences.

About the Creator

Technology that kids can touch and learning are my passion and job. On my campus, I am the interventionist specialist technology teacher. Along side teachers, we plan project-based lessons with hands-on activities and technology when applicable. Along side students, we tinker, design, create to explore concepts in science, technology, engineering and math (we make art). Writing and reading is a part of the design process and integrated throughout projects.
