Hands on Science!
My students need flashlights and solar cars to help learn more about the properties of heat and light.
"Equipped with his five senses, man explores the universe around him and calls the adventure Science," Edwin Powell Hubble. Students at my elementary school have the senses needed to learn, just not the materials.
I count myself as lucky; I am lucky I get to work with amazing students who care about their education.
Students here are attending a Title I school. We have over 20 languages spoken in our school, and most students come from one of 30 different countries. They have little money available to them and with that fewer life experiences. They desperately want to learn and do projects that answer the question why, but have little guidance outside of school and little resources to fund their dreams. Although they have little resources they have big hearts and even brighter futures. School starts at 8:45 and ends at 3:15. Many of my students arrive at 8:00 and leave my class around 4:00. They are always asking to learn more and for help to get farther ahead.
In our grade level we study the properties of heat and light. By supporting our project you will bring real world hands on opportunities to my students. We will be able to explore how we can use light as an alternative source of fuel with solar cars. We will be able to prove properties of light such as reflection, refraction, and absorption with the flashlights. My students need flashlights and solar cars to help learn more about the properties of heat and light.
My students are pure examples of learners.
They are so enthusiastic and love to come to school. By supporting my project, you will give students a chance to discover many concepts and ideas by themselves. I love my students to learn answers based off what they want to know and then allow them to discover the answers on their own. These students are pure examples of learners and everything it means to be inquisitive. This project will provide them with the opportunities they crave
