My students need tri-fold boards in order to participate in the first annual K Journey Academy Science Fair this spring.
This project expired on February 27, 2011.
Hooray! This project is fully funded
The future, it is said, lies in science, mathematics, and technology. For those with the interest, talent, and ability, there are opportunities and exciting careers. It is a future that seeks to improve lives of people, to increase productivity, expand their minds, and extend their potential.
The students who attend the school I teach at are without a doubt some of the hardest working students in the country.
My students never let a challenge keep them from achieving their goals. My students love science class and cannot wait for new labs and demonstrations! This year will be their first science fair and I cannot wait for them to have the opportunity to work independently on their very own project... they will be so excited!!!
Doing a science project provides an opportunity for students to:
•Learn and practice critical thinking, inquiry and investigative skills
•Learn research methods and encourage the development of research techniques - obtain data, keep a research log or notebook, learn graphing and develop conclusions
•Foster imagination and creative thought
•Develop organizational skills
•Work independently as well as in a group
•Enhance communications skills
•Meet others interested in science study
•Earn recognition for academic excellence
It is a dream of mine for all students to participate in a competitive science fair.
Having a school set of tri-fold boards puts students one step closer to educational equity in the science classroom.
