Frog Budgets, STEM Careers, and the True Cost of Chocolate
Mr. Buechele's supplies project at Jerome Middle School in Jerome, ID | Highest Poverty

http://www.donorschoose.org/project/frog-budgets-stem-careers-and-the-tr...

Students will create and follow a budget as they design a frog terrarium and make financially sound choices as they make purchases based on their frog's needs, learn how to plan for 'needs' before 'wants', and calculate yearly feeding costs.

Next they'll learn about the many opportunities they have for future careers and educational opportunities, particularly in the STEM areas. They will consider their interests, career areas, create financial goals, and outline a path to achieving them.

Students will also learn about the Fair Trade, Equal Exchange, and Rainforest Alliance logos and the hidden costs of chocolate on our environment and society. Rainforest are being destroyed and, in Africa, child labor and slavery is a common practice in growing cocoa.

Please help us start a guitar ensemble at our middle school. Research shows the power of music on many levels, and will allow students to experience learning an instrument in a unique, creative setting. This opportunity will be available to any student regardless of prior experience. Use the code SPARK by May 16 to have funds matched up to $100. Thank you!

There's an awesome robotics kit who launched their innovative robotics kit on Kickstarter campaign. You can make 12 different robots with one kit and it's only $99 for now. You can learn how to program C with Arduino and 15+ schools have used their kits for enrichment classes. It's really fun for both adults and children. They are off great start, but they want to reach their goal of $40,000 by this Sunday at 8pm PST. Please help them out.

Hi!

I'm a music teacher in an urban school in the city of Pittsburgh, and we recently lost our Instrumental Music Program. Help me supplement our kids music class by incorporating guitar instruction into their music classes!

Check out my Donorschoose project... only $291.00 more to go!

Thank you for the opportunity to share! I had some success with Donors Choose last year during my first year teaching. Currently, I have a project going for new puzzles. My Early Childhood Special Education classroom has puzzles but most are very old, dirty, and missing many pieces. My kiddos get so sad when they get to the end of the puzzle but they can't finish it because of a piece being gone. We were supposed to be able to order some new ones, but two separate break-ins at our school have resulted in all extra money going to replace gone technology. Any little bit helps and my project is up for the INSPIRE code until July 16th! http://www.donorschoose.org/project/is-a-puzzle-still-a-puzzle-without-a...

S.T.E.A.M Nation is going to be an outstanding experience for those attending, volunteering, and exhibiting at the event. Last year I volunteered, and had a blast! Can't wait till Saturday, October 18th!

STAR Education, a nonprofit in Los Angeles with a 27 year history of success, is bringing equity to innovative learning by producing our second annual S.T.E.A.M. Nation event this October. Our goal is to bring S.T.E.A.M. professionals and 2,000 underserved students to West LA college for a day of inspiring performances and hands-on activities.

Please help us make this happen by sponsoring a student or sharing our Indiegogo campaign: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/s-t-e-a-m-nation-2014
