Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 32

I was able to create an engineering forcused Maker Space where the students can design and build various projects and products.  Through the use of our iPads, they have been able to create and program vaious robots and inventions using common house hold items.  

 

Original Grant Overview

Goal

To create a 21st century maker space to engage students in beginner circuitry, robotics, and design thinking.  

 

What will be done with my students

Students will have opportunities daily to design and test their STEM skills using teacher directed or student directed challenges.  

 

Benefits to my students

This introduction to robotics and circuitry will give students a solid foundation for design thinking that will carry them into more advanced engineering and coding opportunities.  

 

Describe the Students

Being a Title 1 school, we have a very high ELL population 25% and a very low socioeconomic status 89%. These children need to be able to use their creativity in hands on opportunities that they otherwise would not have exposure to.  

 

Budget Narrative

This $1000 grant will give me the ability to start a great 21st Century Maker Space. The above items are mostly reusable to provide multiple opportunities for learning and building design skills.
