With these funds I will be able to provide students with the materials they need to create different STEM projects. During these projects, students will be collaborating and problem solving together! 

Experiment Day is a time where students from different grade levels can come together and work through a STEM project. The goal of Experiment Day is to foster collaboration, problem solving, and curiosity in every learner regardless of their age and background. 

Older students will be paired up with younger ones and they will serve as mentors/buddies. 

The timeline for this process is as follows:

Week 1: The 5th graders will research and decide on a STEM project.  During this time the 5th graders will fill out the data sheet provided by the teacher.

Week 2 and Week 3 – Gather materials ----- We will send a letter home to all the 5th and 2nd grade students to ask for donations and materials.

Sometime during week 4 – EXPERIMENT DAY!! 

If we do not meet our goal...

If I do not meet my goal I will still purchase the necessary materials so that the students can still somehow participate in STEM activities and projects.

Hello,

First of all I want to thank you for contributing to this cause. I would like to give you a quick update on Experiment Day. We will be hosting our first Experiment Day next Thursday with our 5th and 2nd graders. The 5th graders have worked hard to look for awesome STEM activities to do with the 2nd graders. Some of them include building a catapult, building a bridge and making a lava lamp! The students are really excited and cannot wait to get started! Thank you for making  this day a reality. 

I will be posting some pictures of our day next week so stay tuned! :)
