A Peaceful Playground Program by Ms.Houser

To The Theatre for Thomas Mifflin by Mr.Monahan and Ms.Novrit

Campaign summary: The 1st and 2nd graders of Thomas Mifflin Elementary School experience magic together every day in their classroom, imaginations, and their collection of Dr.Seuss books. These students are curious, engaged, and enthusiastic Dr.Seuss fans, and they can’t wait to experience one of their favorite selections on stage at the Irvine Auditorium! There’s nothing more magical than the sights, sounds, and drama of the theatre. The Cat in the Hat, performed by TheatreWorks USA and Two Beans Productions, is a show these incredible students should not miss!

UPDATE 1/4/18: This project met its goal! Congratulations students & staff, we can’t wait to hear about the show!

A Makerspace for Mifflin by Ms.Adeshigbin

Campaign summary: I am a digital literacy educator in a small urban public elementary school in Philadelphia. Mifflin has approximately 300 students. The students are very eager to learn all they can about technology and the various STEM areas. My former students used a 3D printer in my previous school with much success designing and building their original 3D models. I know that my current students would benefit from being exposed to the concept of printing in 3D.

This campaign is for ten 3D printers. Read the story on Technical.ly Philly, and  donate here to help Mifflin students strengthen problem solving skills and imagination.
