My Students

Do you remember the first time you participated in a hands-on science project and it excited you so much that you went home and repeated it? I do. It was in elementary and we made rock candy. I was hooked. My students have become much more excited to learn during our 40 minute science enrichment while doing STEAM activities. Students participate in various STEAM activities. I love hearing their conversations as they offer support or help to their fellow students. My favorite is the “I can’t do this,” that changes to “Look what I just did.” They are excited about learning and want to share their accomplishments. My students become excited and work cooperatively doing hands on science. Most of these students have never completed any type of hands on science before.

My Project

My science students will research and explore an epidemic situation in which they must use a hands-on method to figure a way to stop the epidemic. They will be using the scientific method through STEM approach as a whole class, small groups and individuals. There will be written notes, summaries, trial and error as they begin to understand what an epidemic it, what causes it, how it’s spread, how to treat people exposed, and how to stop it. Students will present and defend their findings through whole group discussions and individual presentations with a final written summary of their findings.
