About My Students

My students are a group of diverse learners who have a passion for STEM. They will and do exceed beyond expectations inside and outside of the classroom. Enrichment and Research are what our students thrive for here in our small urban school. This motivation and inspiration is what gives our students a chance to communicate to the world what they are able to do and say in our community

Coming from a well diverse background, these students are such a great team of interest. Isabella is the youngest of this team of researchers. She is a 9th Grader who comes from the Dominican Republic. She loves music and soon wants to be an Artist. Waleed is a Senior who gains his sights into the field of medicine. Waleed interests include reading and solving scientific investigations through the use of manipulatives.

Students will be able to form an Eco-Friendly Action Team to conduct environmental audits of the school and communities to which they belong. This Eco-Action Team will conduct surveys of airborne causes of pollution. Monitor and evaluate progress​ while informing and involving community civic groups to take responsibility in caring for the air we breathe.

A desired skill demonstrated will include Mathematical Calculations and Data along with displaying the relationships of each data within the ranges of months.

In Their Own Words

Our goal is to create an atmosphere free of pollutants and gases. We need to help address the CO2 levels and decrease CO2 emittance levels of automobiles that are outdated. We are overwhelmed with many people sick with breathing problems in our area. Our goal is to live healthy and long lasting lives.

With the help of the team we are able to withstand the upcoming weather to research outdoors and travel to other sites to get data to be compared to ours. Our goal is to allow others to lead when they are competent enough to handle the data and research it takes to take a stand for our health. We will share roles in the process but as a team we will continue to work together.

Our project is important to us to live and breathe better. Our community has continuously suffered due to high congestion of traffic and the emittance of the gases in our air. Every year we are informed about checking in on our neighbors in the hot summer weather due to age and upper respiratory illnesses. We thought it was time we stood up for our community.

We will try to develop an action plan for our local politicians to help us to continue to reduce CO2 in the air.
