I would like to purchase books for our library media center emphasizing career options for our students interested in STEAM. We have two very active STEAM clubs at our school but many of our other students don't get the opportunity to explore STEAM options due to transportation issues. The Goal of this project is that I would like to serve those students through our LMC where all have access during the school day.

Goal

I would like to purchase books for our library media center emphasizing career options for our students interested in STEAM. We have two very active STEAM clubs at our school but many of our other students don't get the opportunity to explore STEAM options due to transportation issues. The Goal of this project is that I would like to serve those students through our LMC where all have access during the school day. 

 

What will be done with my students

Students would be introduced to the new books during weekly visits to the LMC through book talks. I would also like to work with several teachers on an assignment where students would choose a potential career, research it and then share their findings with the class. 

 

Benefits to my students

Our students would benefit because any activity outside the classroom that peaks their interest in STEAM careers after high school is a bonus. They love to come to the LMC already so what better place to showcase possibilities for their future. 

 

Describe the Students

Our LMC serves all 1200 of our students which consist of every level of performance and includes 4 autistic units and 3 ESOL units. We are also a Title 1 school with over 95% free or reduced lunch eligibility.
