T.E.A.M. STEM Lab
Our Tarwater T.E.A.M.S. (Toros Engineering and Making Science) STEM Lab is looking for your small electronics (working or not) so that our Toros cn take them apart and learn about how things work! Please bring your donation items directly to the Tarwater TEAMS STEM Lab (between the Media Center and the Computer lab) or drop them off in the front office.
Ideal items to donate include desk phones, modems, routers, dvd players, VCRs, handheld electronic toys, remote controls, old computers, etc. Please avoid TVs, computer monitors or items that are ovderly heavy or dangerous for our students. Now that we are back from Fall Break, we will be starting this exploration opportunity with all interested 4th and 5th grade classes and, if successful, we will open this opportunity to other grades. We need a LOT of items to make this a fun and educational hands-on experience for our Toros.
Days that we have students stay indoors for recess (rainy days and high heat days), we are in need of new or gently used board games and Legos to give them activities to enjoy. If you are willing to donate these items, please drop them off at the school office. Thank you!
