My Students

My students are an amazing group of resilient, young leaders.

Our school is situated on a military base, and as such, our students are constantly going through life changes outside of their school work.

Between friends moving, moving themselves, and having parents deployed, they are on an emotional roller coaster, and still manage to put forth their best effort.

With so much on their minds at such a young age, I want to provide them with the most engaging, hands on lessons to help make school an exciting and fun place to be.

My Project

In science, we learn all about electricity. The given curriculum has students read several chapters about static electricity, currents, conductors and insulators, complete circuits, and open and closed circuits. As a textbook lesson, it can be quite boring to simply read about electricity - what makes the lesson engaging is using electricity.

With these tubs, students can actually see what they've read about come to life.

These tubs help teach them about the various types of electricity, conductors, electromagnets, circuits, and more, all while leaving a memorable impression.They will get to build their very own electromagnet, create static electricity, discover how circuits work, create switch circuits, and explore conductors and insulators using circuits.
