Engineer It!

If I am awarded this grant, I will purchase a variety of Engino building sets. These sets are Discovering STEM learning mechanics, physics, simple machines, Newton’s Laws, Solar Power, and Architecture as well as Aircrafts, and car construction kits. Students will have the ability to follow the engineering process along with use creative design techniques to construct many different types of structures. My plan is to use these kits alongside my daily instruction AND build in specific time for students to create. These kits will work with my standards for renewable and nonrenewable energy sources, Newton’s Laws of Physics, among others. These kits will allow are more interactive, hands-on, blended learning approach where students teach themselves and others what worked and what didn’t work throughout the year. Allow my students to ENGINEER IT all year long.

Unlocking the Wonders

We can close the gap between ancient civilizations and rural Eastern Kentucky by purchasing BreakoutEdu boxes and the BreakoutEdu platform. Students will be engaged and active in their own learning. Paintsville ACT Team – Full STEAM Ahead! We plan to create a STEAM room where all students have access to STEAM learning. The teachers will have a focus on critical thinking and problem solving strategies.
