  • $305 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

During our WIN time we are allowed to create and make things during Genius Hour. Although my students live and go to school in a high crime area, thier attendance is excellent! They are excited to learn more.

We are acting as if we are scientists exploring new things.

The experiences we have will help us academically. Since we are testing pizza, glow in the dark items, and headbands we will need a lot of supplies. Please help by funding.

My Project

We are acting as if we are scientists exploring new things. The experiences we have will help us academically. Since we are testing pizza, glow in the dark items, and headbands we will need a lot of supplies.

For the pizza we need the basic structures such as flour for the dough, tomato sauce, spices, and cheese.

This project will need our math skills and science skills to measure our ingredients correctly. We will have a small survey to collect data from the opinions of our classmates. Using the measuring tools like the measuring spoons, we use our math skills and science skills to measure the portions of ingredients for our pizzas. The data that we collect will help us by helping us see what exactly see what makes pizza taste like pizza.

For the glow in the dark items we will need flour, cream of tartar, and glow in the dark paint. This project will help us academically with math and reading skills. We will need math skills for measuring the ingredients correctly. The data I’m collecting will determined if it’s soft like play-doh and if it will glow in the dark.

For the glow in the dark lip gloss we will need some moisturizing jelly, glow in the dark powder, and some containers. The data I will be collecting will be how soft it is and does it feel like a regular lip gloss. Math and science skills will be used for measuring and for experimenting with quantities.

For the headbands we will need elastic, fabric, bendable wire, velcro, hot glue, jewels, and patches. The data I will be collecting will help determine hard or soft headband is preferable. Math skills will be used to measure the elastic, fabric, and velcro and to collect and interpret data.
