My Students

My students are the most remarkable and eager young learners. They deserve this! Fourth grade is one of the most influential years of learning and my class loves to learn. This trip will be planned as the end of the year trip to provide a fun get away field trip with hands on learning. Our students mostly come from low income house holds and we use fundraising for almost all trips and activities. Learning is always better when you are having fun!

My Project

You can help to make learning about energy, motion, and the science and technology behind how a roller coaster works! Today's students are tomorrows engineers. Support STEM and contribute to a community of fun and hands on learning!

We will experience an in-depth educational presentation hosted by roller coaster engineers to gain a better understanding of the planning and construction of California’s Great America’s new roller coaster, RailBlazer!

Your students will gain a better appreciation of what it takes to bring an idea from concept to final product, while learning about motion, energy and physics. Learning is always better when you're having fun!
