Goal

Our goal is to increase student enrollment and achievement in the STEM field by providing students with the hands on learning needed to help them understand the STEM process and foster a love for learning in the STEM field.  

 

What will be done with my students

We are currently learning the Engineering Design Process by building and coding robots. Students would use the robot and add on kits to get hands on experience building robots and experiencing the Design Process. The iPad and kindles would be used to help students learn, explore, and create code for the robot. The kindles would also be used to record and journal the STEM process during their time building and designing. Students will create presentations to show the incoming students the benefits of STEM and increase STEM enrollment.  

 

Benefits to my students

STEM education creates critical thinkers and problem solvers, increases science literacy, and creates the next generation of innovators. This would give my students the opportunities that allow them to move through the scientific process and set students on a path to develop a love of scientific inquiry using the technology to help them stay engaged and expand on their learning.  

 

Describe the Students

We are a title 1 school. 70% of students receive free or reduced lunch with 6 % of the school population designated as homeless.  

 

Budget Narrative

One Makeblock robot kit, three add-on kits to the MakeBlock robot, one IPad Apple to connect and interact with the robot, and five kindle fires to learn and practice coding.
