Hi! I am a 3rd grade teacher. I have been out of the classroom for a number of years working as support staff and I am so excited to be back in the classroom. I am trying to get supplies to bring science and literacy to the forefront for my students. My current project is with Donor's Choose. The match code INSPIRE will be good through 9-14-14. Thank you for your support! http://www.donorschoose.org/donors/search.html?keywords=1327521

My students are 7 and 8 year old children with a deep desire to learn. Although they attend school at a Title I campus these students deserve the same opportunities as learners in other campuses around our area. Our school provides us with amazing support, however, the access they have to quality literacy materials is limited. I want to provide my students with all the resources necessary to create independent and fluent readers. I will share my love of learning with the students I serve through a variety of learning opportunities. I strive to provide my students with resources that will enhance their literacy education. These books and reading manipulative's will be able to serve not only the students in this class, but for many years to come.

Today's learner is a hands-on, do-two-things-at-once, give me information now type of learner. Students don't typically get excited to curl up with a book. But when offered a laptop and a challenge... they literally hustle to the hallway with their pillows (I provide them pillows!) to get started.

Please consider donating to get laptops in the hands of 200 Philadelphia school children: http://www.donorschoose.org/klkatz/?supporters=true&rf=page-siteshare-20...

5th Grade ELA/SS Teacher

This is my first year teaching 5th grade. I have taught 3rd grade for the past 7 years in a different school district. I would love to create a learning environment centered around technology and have started taking the steps toward this process by creating a donorschoose project. Please check out my first project. If you would like to give, make sure you enter the code INSPIRE at checkout to have your gift doubled. This code will only last until September 21.

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

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!

"iPads for Boys in St. Louis Classroom" www.GoFundMe.com/eihsmo

Hello, my name is Jim Triplett, and I teach a gender-based classroom of 5th grade boys, in the St. Louis Public School District. I've been with these young men since 3rd grade, looped to 4th grade with them last year, and this year I looped again to 5th grade. I'm trying to raise funds to get iPads for each of my students, so they can learn and be engaged through the use of technology. Please visit my GoFundMe page to support through giving, and to see a picture and a video of the students who you would be helping! Thanks in advance!

Exciting Hands-on Education for Children! http://igg.me/at/youngengineers

Check out our free project plans as well: http://www.instructables.com/id/Project-Based-Engineering-for-Kids/

The Workshop for Young Engineers is a small education-based business that serves the San Francisco East Bay Area (think Berkeley and surrounding cities). We enroll about 500 students each year and host 20 classes at many different public schools. Our philosophy is that kids learn best by doing, by using their hands and their minds to test and idea firsthand, observe the results, and then revise their design before testing again. Our mission is to inspire personal, intellectual, and creative growth in children by means of hands-on engineering projects, and to promote resourcefulness, troubleshooting, and a practical understanding of physics.

To that end, we are also seeking to expand our impact to more schools in our area (and eventually beyond!). Please consider supporting our crowdfunding campaign. To show our appreciation, we're rewarding backers with kits of materials to make some of our best projects: http://igg.me/at/youngengineers

Thanks for looking. I hope you find the project plans to be inspiring and helpful!

Kind regards,

Lance Akiyama
