My Students

My students are excited to learn science and love to incorporate project-based learning into our lessons. They love going home and sharing what they are learning, and look forward to connecting their learning with future career goals. I am always looking for new ways to engage my students both in and out of the classroom.

My students become very engaged in learning when we can create project-based learning opportunities.

Our school is in a small, rural school district in southwest Ohio, housed in a building that is almost one hundred years old. Some of my students are learning in the same classrooms that their parents and grandparents did and that makes our school a comfortable place for families to gather.

My Project

In this project I am requesting Sphero Robotics and off-road covers for them for an adventure outside to another world on our Giant Mars Map from the Sharespace Foundation.

As soon as the weather permits we are launching our MARS rovers for a soft-landing on MARS, with a live broad-podcast on site.

My students will be creating launch capsules and parachutes for our Sphero's that will be launched from a scissor-lift for a soft landing on MARS (map). We will have student teams live on site with our iPads equipped with microphones and wind covers to broadcast the competition hosting live team interviews as student teams try to exit their capsules and navigate to their pre-arranged site location.
