My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. I want them to know I believe in them, and they can do anything. I happily give it my all to teach these incredibly curious and imaginative students with high energy and engagement. Most of them speak English as a second language in an inner-city, Title I school and struggle through many hardships before even entering the classroom.

Despite many challenges, my students love learning and trying new ideas to make their projects better.

Our school supports all kinds of creative thought processes. In a high poverty neighborhood, school is sometimes the only safe place that can provide support and opportunity to overcome the struggles of meeting our rigorous state standards.

My Project

My students will be given a chance to engage in scientific experiments using the Force and Motion kit and record the scientific process with the GoPro high speed camera. Motion is difficult to capture, but this camera's burst function is ideal in capturing many images in just seconds. The ability of this camera to transmit live video will allow instantaneous assessment of the motion experiments and promote further inquiry. Finally, students will share scientific discoveries with their peers throughout the school using the presentation boards.

Given the right tools, my students will be engaged in scientific inquiry and feel like they have something to contribute to the world of science and discovery.

Every contribution to our digital science learning is greatly appreciated.
