My Students

My students are inquisitive and love to do hands-on assignments. Performing these labs within the classroom gives them the opportunity to explore through inquiry. Improving technology and supplies in the classroom allows them to fully engage in a variety of ways and gives them the opportunity to think and discover just as scientists do in the real world.

They love to explore the phenomenon of the world around and inquire about the "why".

Students learn best when given an authentic educational experience.

My Project

Science by nature is a hands-on curriculum designed to work best when students can explore the phenomenon of the world around them. Samsung Solve for Tomorrow has given the science department the opportunity to expand our ability to give students these much-needed experiences. They will be able to act and think like scientists in the real world by discovering the answers to their questions through their own doings.

Students will now be able to experience science in an authentic way that will allow them to take knowledge with them beyond the classroom.

This is the way science is meant to be taught and learned.
