Fully funded project – Philadelphia SchoolDecember 14, 2016 | by Brooke Willmes
Mr. Franklin, a Philadelphia public school teacher, teaches STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics) courses to young students. He has a strong focus on letting the students gain control and unleash their creativity when it comes to exactly what projects they create. Mr. Franklin says that many of the students are currently building things that they plan to sell to make money for holiday shopping.
Mr. Franklin would like to continue to expand this class for the students, and with that comes the need for more/new materials. He had asked for donations to be made to help supply the students ‘makerspace’ with Silhouette Curios, vinyl, metal, and various other tools. We are very happy that we were able to support this cause and that it is now fully funded!
