Outdoor STEM Classroom
School: The Giving Tree Preschool
With the grant funds, we will purchase equipment for an outdoor STEM classroom. We will purchase: a large balance scale, a water/sensory/discovery table, a work bench, natural blocks, planting boxes, and supplies to go with each. All equipment will be used to increase the knowledge of preschool children in the area of science by growing plants and investigating nature. Children will get experience with engineering by building and designing using natural blocks and natural materials. We will encourage math skills using the balance scales determining weight and sizes. All equipment will be sized and geared to increase the interest in the science, engineering and math areas.
