Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

The purpose of my proposal is to jump-start the brains of my 7th grade science students at our northside Chicago public junior high school. There I hope the mostly Hispanic/Polish/African- American students will enjoy the same type of thought processing calistenics witnessed by all on the real Jeopardy T.V. show. This game not only comes with real looking game cartridges that contain pre-made questions that cover physical, earth, life, and chemical science; history, civics,and math, but blank cartridges so students can customize their own questions that pit them against teachers or students from other schools! Students will see their questions on blue screens that appear on classroom or auditorium TV monitors and experience using those maddening buzzers like on TV! The game also comes with extra scoreboards. The students in our school can share this experience in their indivual classrooms as a test preparation tool, or in the auditorium with visitors from the community. The possiblilty of social interaction generated by healthy educationally challenging competition among students can be achieved with this learning tool that will be something fun we can use all of the time!
