My Students

Our students learn best by doing. In other words, students will learn best by trying to make sense of something on their own with the teacher as a guide to help them along the way.

Many of our students are English language learners.

One of the best techniques educators can use to help these students master science concepts is to provide examples of real, relevant, hands-on science materials and equipment.

Our student population is 92.6% socioeconomically disadvantaged and 39.1% are English learners.

My Project

The digital microscope cameras will help our students complete more detailed and accurate lab reports. The digital photos they take can be uploaded to their iPads and added to their lab reports, making them more professional and detailed.

Our students can use digital microscope cameras at any grade level to complete multiple labs.

Examples of possible labs could be inspecting tiny objects like cells, coins, fibers, plants, circuit boards, skin, and insects. Using digital microscope cameras, students will also be able to capture video as well as jpg photos.

These digital microscope cameras will help our current and future students master science concepts by allowing them to observe and document examples of science concepts that they see every day.
