From Education.com- “STEM EDUCATION is a new movement in American Education to help teachers and their students understand how the academic disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics impact their world and prepare them for the workforce of tomorrow. STEM is multidiscipline based, incorporating the integration of other disciplinary knowledge into a new whole. Technology helps us communicate; Math is the language; Science and Engineering are the processes for thinking; all this leads to Innovation.
STEM Education is more than just presentation and dissemination of information and cultivation of techniques. It is a process for teaching and learning that offers students opportunities to make sense of the world and take charge of their learning, rather than learning isolated bits and pieces of content. In the STEM environment, there is less emphasis on activities that demonstrate science content and a greater focus on those activities that allow students to engage in real world problems and experiences through project-based, experiential learning activities that lead to higher level thinking. Learning in a STEM environment compels students to understand issues, distill problems, and comprehend processes that lead to innovative solutions.”
The tuition for this week long program is $2195.00. Being a single parent with two children, it is hard for me to come up with the money to send her myself. We would like to raise $2500.00 so in addition to the tuition I can get a hotel room close by so I could be available if needed since this is Gabrielle’s first time away from home in this type of environment.
Gabrielle is really excited about getting nominated twice and hopes to raise enough money so she can attend. She is a caring, bright, young lady and I don't want this opportunity to pass her by. If you donate, we will greatly appreciate it. If you are unable to donate at this time, thank you for reading this far and please keep her in your prayers. Shout out to my little girl for doing her best and striving to achieve her goals. Reach for the stars baby girl you are going to go far!
