My Students

Our class is a community of learners and presenters, we take responsibility for our learning. Students know that the bulk of the work lies on their shoulders, and that their parents and I are their support team, here to help them learn in any way we can. We also know that discussions are vital to our growth.

The students in our class and school study at an urban, Title I school, where nearly all students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Our students are energetic, have a strong desire to learn, and can count on strong parental support. Many of our students are English language learners and many of our families are classified at lower socioeconomic levels.

My Project

This kit will help my students understand and use the engineering design process with a focus on Material Engineering. The Museum of Science-produced kit will be an excellent addition to our classroom. From their website:

¨Kids will use each step of the Engineering Design Process as they become materials engineers.

Materials engineers are people who

use their understanding of different materials (such as metals,

plastics, or wood) to make things that solve problems. In this unit,

kids experiment with materials that can be used to make bubble

wands, consider which materials are best for making different

kinds of bubbles, and determine which combination of materials

they will use to create their own unique bubble wands.¨
