My Students

My students come from a middle school where 25% are English language learners and 80% of them receive free lunch. In addition, 25% of my students have disabilities that impact their learning.

Last year students with disabilities struggled to engage with science remotely without hands on materials.

As we prepare to go back to school, my students will be in class two days a week and four days remotely before returning to the building. Having four remote classes without one to one hands on materials takes away the hands on experience from science. My students with disabilities learn best using manipulatives while engaging in the inquiry process.

My Project

Last spring when New York City schools shut down, my students were left with a less than ideal science experience. The magic of doing science themselves relied on videos and at home experiments. Often, students were unable to gather materials for at home experiments. Asking students to go out to find materials during a pandemic or order them is far from equitable or safe.

As we start school again, my students need a set of magnets to perform the first few weeks of their Electricity and Magnetism unit.

These magnets will be used at home to perform remote experiments. This allows students an equitable and safe science experience while allowing them to see themselves as Scientists.
