My Students

I have the opportunity to teach Science to an amazing group of students. Although we have large class sizes, these students are very engaged in the curriculum and love what we are doing in class. Part of the engagement is because they get to do "hands-on investigations" that my students get excited about. Last year because of Covid, we did not get to do our investigations in the same way as we usually would do because of Covid restrictions.

Hands-on experiences are so important in the learning process.

So often we lack materials to do all the projects we need. Every student should get the opportunity to do the projects that accompany our curriculum. This year and for years to come I would like my students to have this opportunity.

My Project

Last year my students were not able to participate in some of our thermal energy transfer investigations like we have done in years past due to Covid restrictions. With enough materials, students can do their own individual investigations without the worry of spreading illness to each other.

Just one example, my students will be able to design and create a water bottle to keep their cold water cold as an individual student.

They will be able to go through the whole investigation using their own materials without having to share them with the students around them. This will greatly lessen the anxiety that many of my students are experiencing at this time.
