My Students

I tell my students, "I hope by the end of this school year that you learn to appreciate the universe that exists around us." My class focuses on students figuring out how things work in science through hands-on activities and labs. This approach to science teaching allows my students to ask questions, design solutions, and explain how things work at a deeper level.

My students are 7th and 8th graders who are full of natural curiosity and wonder.

They are eager to learn new things and are fascinated by learning about science. My school has students from a wide range of incomes, including a growing population of low-income students. The low-income students are surrounded by students who have things that they do not have.

My Project

Have you ever wanted to see how the surface of the earth changes? An augmented reality sandbox would allow my students to see how changes on the surface of the earth happen and would allow them a hands on experience to learn about earth science. This would increase my students' level of engagement and give them an experience learning about the earth by allowing them to see how the earth responds to movement along the surface and inside the earth. It is difficult to find engaging, hands on ways of learning earth science, but the augmented reality sandbox would make learning more fun and memorable!
