Hooray! This project is fully funded
I am a fifth grade teacher at a high-risk Charter school in Indianapolis. I am currently teaching a science unit on Astronomy. The students' interest in this topic has truly inspired me. I want to be able to do more for them than the typical classroom science lesson allows.
Last night I visited the Challenger Learning Center in Decatur Township. It was open invitation to teachers. The experience was amazing. It is a space simulation for young people. Students assume the role of a mission specialist operating a space station and mission control to navigate the space craft and complete the mission.
The experience not only deepens the students' understanding of the solar system, but also focuses on teamwork, leadership skills, communication and problem solving-real life skills. The students must work together to complete their mission successfully.
Thanks so much for your help!!
