My students need a Thermal Imaging Camera in order to iteratively test, analyze, and modify engineering designs as they investigate the transfer of thermal heat energy.
I have the joy of being in a classroom with identified gifted and talented children. They are not only academically bright, but are wonderful young men and women - kind, curious, imaginative, socially and politically concerned. I absolutely love being a part of their growth and seeing the wonder in their eyes when we are learning together. I believe that my students deserve the very best; and your generous donations will make it possible.
My gifted students need to be challenged; so they can grow, explore curiosities, and try new things.
They are motivated by all the technological advances our world has to offer and I believe it is my responsibility to provide them opportunities to develop 21st century skills. I am passionate about integrating technology into my regular core instruction in order to increase authentic STEM instructional strategies and learning.
Thank you for supporting my eager to learn students!
The new Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) encourage educators to plan lessons using the 5E method - engage, explore, explain, elaborate, and evaluate. In 6th grade, we are tasked with designing an object, tool, or process that minimizes or maximizes the transfer of thermal energy. I believe making this abstract concept tangible to my students is critical. Heat loss becomes relevant to students when they engineer/construct basal wood and paper houses and then testing the thermal heat energy loss using the FLIR C2 Themal Imaging Camera.
With your generous donation, my students will be able to capture stunningly-detailed thermal images and then test various insulation materials in order to optimize minimal heat loss.
The world is changing at a rapid pace and my students want to change with it. They want to use current technologies and make a difference. Right now, their enthusiasm is high and giving them opportunities in supporting their interests with applicable and relevant tasks is so valuable. My students will love using an industry current tool, they want to use the "real-deal" and are capable of understanding and using actual equipment used in real-life. Who know, this project may even inspire these young people to engage in the greater cause of being environmentally responsible.
