I am a teacher at a small school in Newmarket whose community is largely made up of lower income families. We would like to further develop our Modern Learning Commons where students come to explore their creativity using various materials and resources that they would not typically have the opportunity to explore. We would like to expand our S.T.E.M areas and expose students to new learning opportunities in this area. We currently have 6 stations set up for students to choose from. The majority of these stations are geared towards the older children. We would like the opportunity to expand the number of stations we have and gear these new stations towards the younger students in our school so that we are providing everyone with an equal opportunity to embrace their creativity and take risks learning new technologies.
