Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 16

My students were not exposed to STEM and did not understand how things in the world work. These activities helped them build strong communication among their peers. They had to solve problems and figure things out on there own.  Students were estactic how magnets work together and how you can move objects without touching it.

 

Students saw how circuits make things move and they were very interested in how electric work. Adding playdough to electricity was really a kicker because they never thought how they work together.  Students were building traps, ramps etc. with KEVA structures and how to make a ball move through. 

 

My students are now interested in STEM careers and hopefully will continue the excitement for their future endeavors.

Original Grant Overview

Goal

The funds will be used to increase student knowledge and engage students in understanding coding, electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism. 

 

What will be done with my students

Hands on activities will include:
Build a Circuit – Demonstrate how a switch works;
Students will use play dough to conduct electricity using the Light Emitting Diode (LED) component; Build an FM radio, motion detector, musical doorbell, space battle sound effects, and flying saucer;
Step-by-step students will learn about coding, programming, and debugging codes using the STEM in Action® Coding Mouse Exploration;
Build an Electromagnet – Use copper wire and a battery to turn a nail into a magnet; and
students wiil use a battery, a magnet, and some copper wire to build an electric motor that spins. Students will test wood to see if it conducts electricity. Students will use poster to write their thoughts and ideas. 

 

Benefits to my students

Almost all devices at homes, businesses and industries are running because of electricity. Students will have an understanding coding, why electricity is important and foster an interest in electrical engineering. They will be able to explore, create, observe, and see the world with new lenses and brcome agents of discovery. 

 

Describe the Students

Students vary in different learning needs. There are students who need remediation and students who need enrichment. Our school is a Title I school which has a large low socio-economic population and all of our students get free breakfast and lunch.
Ethnicity: 90% African American and 10% non-African American 

 

Budget Narrative

Students will use these materials to encourage and enhance active engagement to explore and experiment with the world around them. Learn the basic circuit principles and investigate the electricity, coding and magnetism by doing experiments. Students will be responsible by keeping products organized in a storage.
