My Students

Prior to 7th grade, my students were not taught science every day as reading and mathematics were the main focus. Now in the 8th grade, most of my students say that science is their favorite subject.

With every science unit, my students learn about the possibilities of what they can do with the knowledge they gain, and how their classroom skills can be translated into real-world experience.

I want them to have a deep understanding of the practicality of science in everyday life and to be excited for STEAM-based projects. At only 13 and 14 years-old, I have encouraged my students to think about their passion for science and turning it into a career.

Most of my students receive free or reduced lunch. Their families do not have enough money for food during the weekend let alone for school supplies. Many of my students have endured traumatic events such as the death of a parent, surviving the earthquake in Haiti in 2010, or being homeless. Through science, my students learn about exciting new topics each day in class and now have goals to strive for in the future with their career aspirations.

My Project

By attending the Aviation and Maritime STEM Expo, my students will learn about STEM careers by talking with experts in various fields such as flight safety, search and rescue, and homeland security, and using equipment in a hands-on setting where they are encouraged to explore paths that they have not previously known.

Students have loved this experience and have made connections between what they learn in the classroom to what they can do in real-life in the STEM fields.

I want students who have attended the city-wide science fair competition to experience this EXPO due to their passion and curiosity for STEM.
