My Students

My students are eager and reflective learners. They have a curiosity about science, but often times, don’t see the significance it plays in their daily lives. When I ask students to describe their idea of a scientist, responses always seem to include “brainiacs”, or “the smartest guys”. Many students find it hard to picture themselves involved in science careers, but that is often because they have had limited exposure to the many guises that science can take. I want them to understand that science is really about curiosity and passion!

My Project

My students should have many opportunities to see authentic examples of science in action. To this end, they have worked closely with ecologists from the New York City Parks Organization to survey wildlife in some of NYC’s green spaces. Some have collected data with the Million Oyster project.

Having access to Scholastic Science World magazines will greatly expand the students’ exposure to science in the real world.

I hope that as my students read about science concepts and current scientific discoveries, they will begin to see that science is truly all around us. The magazines will also encourage my students to act like scientists, engaging in experiments and engineering challenges. I want my students to picture themselves as the scientists of the future.
