Powell Valley Elementary

Field Trips Around the World with Virtual Reality

Powell Valley has taken the lead as a STEAM driven school that offers students a variety of 21st century technologies and skills.  We want to give our students every opportunity to learn through doing, rather than just sitting and getting, therefore the staff have created project-based learning environment.

To that end, we would like to add a set of 10 ASUS Virtual Reality headsets to our school for all classrooms to be able to check out.  This project would allow an estimated 500 students from Kindergarten to 5th Grade explore locations virtually from inside their classrooms.  No longer are students confined to the four walls of our classrooms.  This campaign would unlock around 800 virtual field trips that put real world locations right in front of our students.    

We hope that you will consider donating to this visionary project.  The engagement that these Virtual Reality Headsets would bring to our school would truly take our school to the next level of STEAM-centered learning.

Get On The Tomorrow Bus - Today!



The Gresham-Barlow School District is taking the concept of a mobile STREAM lab to new levels with the creation of a STREAM bus!

STREAM is an acronym that stands for Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Art and Math. 

The Tomorrow Bus provides K-8 grade students access to equipment, resources, and high-interest projects.  Inspired staff will promote hands-on learning, exposure to career pathways and transferable skills and knowledge.  

The bus was donated by First Student and was outfitted by Knapheide for storage and technology support.  Our next step is to make the bus engaging from the outside!  Thanks to students at the Center for Advanced Learning, a wrap for the bus was designed that will immediately communicate its purpose and get students excited to see what awaits them inside the bus.  Camping World will be attaching an awning in the next couple of months.

While the infrastructure is coming together, our district Technology Coaches are working on the curriculum.  

Your donation will be used to purchase curriculum material. 

A $25 donation will buy STREAM learning material for 2 students.  Art kits, magnets, eye droppers, and goggles are the basic items that begin the learning process.

A $50 donation will buy equipment to support STREAM teaching.  All learning begins with reading, and students need books to support STREAM lessons.  They also need balance scales, hot plates and more.  

A $100 donation will purchase technology to support STREAM curriculum.  Spheros, Ozobots, iPads and Chromebooks are all essential to put curriculum into action.

In order to create a more inclusive environment where each of our students can feel valued and appreciated for their cultural identify we would like to display a flag from their home country.
