STEAM TO BUILDING DREAMS

What’s more empowering for students than helping to create solutions to real-life issues? When students learn about local issues and then engage in working towards shaping solutions, they become independent thinkers and change makers - that is why A Bed for Every Child created the STEAM to Building DREAMS Project.

 

STEAM projects require students to systematically think through problems, applying the information they learn along the way to figure out the best solution. The STEAM to Build DREAMS Project gives students a chance to engage in a hands-on, experiential learning environment where they will apply mathematics skills, think creatively, and build a bed, all the while they are designing a customized twin bed from raw wood and materials to individual bed pieces. 

 

The STEAM to Build DREAMS project provides a meaningful, team-building experience as students learn to work together, ask questions, divide up responsibilities, compromise, listen and encourage each other throughout the activity.  At the end of the 3-part series,  their collective effort will result in a one of a kind twin bedframe designed specifically for a child growing up in poverty in need of a bed of their own.
