My Students

In our world today it has never seemed more important to have a strong science program from the very start of every child"s education. We need to have more and more children coming into the adult world interested in science, comfortable in science, and excited about the ways to help the world they live in.

We have books and videos in our classrooms, but we always seem to be lacking the hands on part of science that will help the children connect what they are learning and reading about in their science books.

My Project

Having more hands on items in science help teachers to really ignite the spark of learning in our students, hopefully creating more children who will want to pursue science as a career.

These marble runs and UV beads will give children a chance to create, explore, and be excited about the world of science.

The children will experiment by building and observing the changes UV rays have on all things and how to work together to answer questions about the world around them. What the world needs now more than ever is scientists to help slove the problems the world is being faced with and be interested in experimenting and creating.
