The materials in this project will make a difference in my students' learning by providing transformative learning experiences in science that encourage "hands-on" learning that allows students to begin exploring potential STEM career choices of interest. In our classroom, we spend approximately 30 minutes per day exploring science concepts, with some of the most popular concepts among my students being space science and weather. In our science lessons, my students are able to show mastery and understanding of the key concepts best while being able to explore in a hands-on way with a variety of lab-based activities and room transformations that integrate our other main content areas with the science concept being learned. By adding an American Educational Tornado Demonstration Model to our classroom, my students will be able to actively explore how tornadoes, part of our severe weather phenomena learning segment, form by using the dials on the model to adjust airflow and the size of the tornado model, for example. Finally, this model will help my students to visualize the concepts they are learning in class. In addition, the Learning Resources Weather Center and the Climate and Weather Science Kit will allow my students to jump right in as junior meteorologists by allowing them to carry out hands-on experiments and make observations using science journals that we have in our classroom. Finally, for our space unit I do a room transformation with my students where we spend the day in "outer space". Adding the moon lamp and motorized solar system kit will enhance our room transformations and also serve as an additional learning tool for this unit.
