Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are curious and adventurous. We have a school farm and it is filled with chickens and a couple of miniature cows. We just set up an aquaponics garden with tilapia fish this summer and it is moving along quite nicely. Our school is in a suburban community and surrounded by homes, businesses, main highways, and lots of warehouses. We are a Title I school and have a large population of students on free or reduced lunch.
Students at our school love being at school and work hard every day.
They strive to be better individuals and emulate the characteristics of model students and citizens. In our class, students work in groups/teams to complete tasks and are learning skills that can be transferred to other classes and to future careers.
The aerial drone will allow my students to use innovative technology to view our school farm and gardens differently. It will enrich their learning experiences and allow them to learn how to use what they may consider a toy/game to really learn more about their surroundings and how what we do makes a difference.
The chromebook will allow students to upload and view the video/pictures of the aerial view from the drone.
These materials together will help students to see things differently and they are tools that can be used over and over again and the learning will continue and take on different aspects.
