Mr. Sergent from Winchester KY is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Future Aeronautic Scientists: The Mystery of Flight

My students need materials in order to explore aeronautics. The three STEM challenge kits will help them understand the principles of motion and flight. The rocket kit and altimeter will be used as a culminating activity.

My Students

My students are simply amazing. They are inquisitive, funny, opinionated, and compassionate. On the first day of school, I welcome them to my classroom family and let them know that we are going to grow and learn together.

In the course of a year, I push them and do everything in my power to help them be successful.

Many of them show up before school is in session for tutoring. I have students who stay late because they want to work on projects. They are dedicated, and hardworking.

My class deserves the absolute best. It is my job to do everything I can as a teacher to ensure they reach their full potential.

My Project

My students will be learning about aeronautics. During this course, they will first explore the principles of motion and later apply them to create a modified chemical rocket with the goal of achieving the highest altitude.

The STEM kits that I have chosen will allow them to explore how friction, force, mass, and energy all play roles in the movement of a machine (specifically a flying machine).

The rocket kits coupled with the altimeter will allow my students to gather data regarding their machines flight. They will then redesign the rocket with the goal of its flight surpassing their original altitude.
