My Students

The students at my school are dedicated to their academic career. They have chosen a charter school to challenge them. The students are in a college prep school and they want to be the best that they can be.

The students want to explore the world from every angle and need every resource that they can get to prepare themselves for the world and the job market.

They want to investigate the world, build a solid foundation in our STEAM program that will take them into the 21st century job market with the tools they need.

My Project

Students will be able to investigate simple machines and how Force and Motion work. Using these kits to build the machines, the students will get first hand experience in discovering why something works.

Friction, force, motion and Newton's three laws of physics are all connected to how simple machines function, and will be easier for students to understand as they build the machines themselves.

Research shows that an investigative approach helps students learn quicker and understand the materials better. By giving them the tools to investigate the ideas of Force and Friction, the students will have a greater understanding of Science.
