What will be done with my students

Female students will meet once a week in small group setting to complete K'Nex activities. The K'Nex kits include teacher materials and supplies for students to complete activities.
Students will create several different bridge designs and discuss the difference in the structures themselves.
They will also build objects that will teach them science, technology, and engineering concepts.  

 

Benefits to my students

Opening up a STEM group for young girls will help increase their interest and desire to learn more in the area of science. Using technology will help reinforce the learning and push students to strive for higher academic goals.
