My Students

The students at our elementary school are fun, curious and ready to learn!

Most specifically, the students I work with are full of life, but come from some tough pasts.

We are full of immigrant families, refugees and transient families who find themselves moving around a lot. But, we also have plenty of students who we have seen grow up here! Regardless of their past, our kiddos are super important to us and we want nothing more than for them to succeed.

My Project

STEM learning is always best when students can experience it with hands-on activities in engaging ways. What better way to teach forces like thrust, lift, drag and gravity, than to experience it with rockets?

These rocket launchers will help students experiment with how much force it takes to thrust a rocket different distances.

Students can change other factors as well. What happens if you add wings? How do you get more lift on the flight of your rocket? What other factors will contribute to the forces acting upon the rocket?

Students will use these rockets during our STEM Night Event and beyond, to experience what it's like to be a scientist at NASA, making these changes!
