I will engage with high school students from disadvantaged environments in an after school STEM club as an introduction into the world of STEM. I plan to support these students through field trips, mentoring, career shadowing, and project –based learning. I will have two certified science teachers to facilitate all STEM lessons. Persistence and perseverance will be fostered in this club--Math Common Core Standards: MP1 and MP6.

Goal

I will engage with high school students from disadvantaged environments in an after school STEM club as an introduction into the world of STEM. I plan to support these students through field trips, mentoring, career shadowing, and project –based learning. I will have two certified science teachers to facilitate all STEM lessons. Persistence and perseverance will be fostered in this club--Math Common Core Standards: MP1 and MP6.  

 

What will be done with my students

Students will create robots using Raspberry Pi computers, build and code with the Internet and other STEM projects; attend field trips, mentoring, career shadowing, and project –based learning. I will have two certified science teachers to facilitate all STEM lessons. I plan to award incentives to foster intrinsic motivation for students.  

 

Benefits to my students

Students will gain confidence, perseverance and precision, through collaboration and hands-on learning with peers, STEM professionals and certified science teachers. Students will begin to gain more discipline in STEM related subjects as they develop more perseverance and precision. Students will experience camaraderie from interacting peers from diverse backgrounds and skill-sets to create various STEM projects: cars, rollercoasters, hover crafts and robots using Raspberry Pi computer hardware.  

 

Describe the Students

Students are from a mixture of learning backgrounds: ESL, honor students, traditional and ESE.
