My Students

SCIENCE! SCIENCE! SCIENCE! Science is especially fun in my class. My students love to do science. They would do science ALL day long, ALL week long if given the chance. Who wouldn't?

Eager, curious and SO, SO smart is the best way to describe my budding scientists.

Every day their eyes widen in anticipation of doing science between discovering new things, and trying out new science experiments, my students crave science. They do their best learning when they can get their hands on materials.

My Project

My students will be able to explore, and discover science concepts that will come to life when they are in their hands. The science stations will allow my students to discover basic scientific concepts like patterns, magnets, and force and motion. This project will allow my students to use their observation skills by looking at the shells, insects and seasonal photos. With this new knowledge they will be building background knowledge they may not have been able to attain without this experience.

My students lives will be enriched by the getting their hands on actual materials, performing experiments, and practicing their observation skills.

You can change their lives and get them headed down a science career track by giving them this opportunity. You could possibly be contributing to the next greatest scientific mind of the next generation.
