My students are 7th graders in Florida. They are a nearly equal mix of demographics. We have a high percentage of free and reduced lunch students, and we bus kids in from all the way in the next county. We have a myriad of types, from inner-city to suburban children. These kids can be inspired! An engineering program we ran on spit-and-bailing wire and candy sales from my pushcart made us second in District for the SECME Engineering Olympiad! A group of kids from mixed backgrounds earned medals competing is water rockets, mousetrap-powered cars, and balsa wood bridges. These are kids who love science and don't know it. Their textbooks bore them, but they plead with me to show the entirety of Into the Universe with Stephen Hawking after a few tantalizing clips. I have a boy who can't stand school who begs me to see the Astronomy Picture of the Day website every class. I want to take that love of hands-on science and beautiful astronomy presentation to the next level.
