The purpose of this grant is to increase the science presence in our current Makerspace program at SJE. All 3rd-5th grade students will use these items weekly in our Wednesday Maker Day held in the library.
Each student who attends Maker Day will have the opportunity to use these items in two 20-minute stations. All grade level teachers may check out these stations for use in their classrooms for integration on days other than Wednesdays.
Our goals for the Makerspace stations is to provide opportunities for students to explore engaging STEAM activities while collaborating with others. Another goal is to provide opportunities that motivate students to practice critical thinking skills, creativity, and problem solving while communicating with their peers.
