My Students

Our district is comprised of a diverse population where 73% of the students come from an economically disadvantaged household. There are few economic opportunities for families in the immediate area and even fewer resources available to introduce students to STEM careers.

Although they come from an economically disadvantaged area, I have many students who plan on attending college in STEM fields such as engineering, medical professions, and computer science, but the lack of available equipment stifles this interest.

My students are naturally inquisitive, challenging, and aspire to achieve their goals.

My Project

One of the challenges for students in Science is to visualize what's happening in a given scenario or situation. Demonstrations help with this problem, but in larger classes, it is hard for all students to see the demonstration taking place. We are requesting a document camera and various cables to help them see notes, small demonstrations, and other simulations that we complete as a class!

A document camera can be used for so much more than just displaying documents!

We plan on using this camera to showcase demonstrations so that all students can effectively see the material being presented.

The camera will be used to display the material on the classroom whiteboard through the projector so that students who are in the back of the room have the same experience as those in the front. This will be ideal for both documents as well as simple demonstrations that are better experienced firsthand.
