My Students

Science should be more than something you study from a text book or read about. Seeing Science happening in everyday life makes it more understandable, more approachable and not so overwhelming. Our school is so small we do not have a library that would normally house these materials.

Our students are unique as are all children but with a twist.

The students are currently or just recently homeless. In most ways they are typical kids. They play, laugh, have fun, etc. Their home life is very atypical. Above all else they are still expected to learn like all other children but with little to no experiences to pull from. Most have never been to places many children frequent like amusement parks, restaurants, malls, etc. Taking them to these experiences through something like a video helps them to at least see places that they can only imagine ever going.

My Project

These videos will give our unique students an experience to see Science in action. We will use these to help students connect real world science experiences to what they are learning in the classroom. These Myth Busters videos provide a unique way of making science an everyday occurrence.

Thank you in advance for helping to provide our students with an learning tool they would not other wise be afforded.

Poverty and homelessness should not affect the learning experiences of children.
