My Students

TABS taking science by storm! We are a whirlwind of activities and classes at this early college high school. My school is a title one school with the over 50% free lunches and over 70% minority. We are an early college high school which is a great opportunity for the 78% of students who will be the first in their family to attend college. We are a very small school with under 400 students. As such, our school also has a very small budget to work with. These students have drive! Most of these wonderful young people hope to enter the science and medical fields. I hope to help enrich students science education with hands-on labs that will bring their studies to life!

My Project

We are seeking hands on lab materials and visual models so students can better understand complex concepts in Environmental Science. We are looking at a display model to visualize what indicator species are present in water that is at different states of water quality.

Learning about owls and predators is a hoot!

We are seeking to refill our owl pellet lab with large owl pellets to students can see how an owl earns a living by consuming small rodents.

Students need to learn about invasive species and species survival with special labs to simulate multifaceted environmental concepts. Students will also learn about adaptations with a claw display model that will show how different claws are best at different jobs. This project will definitely have the students engaged with hands-on learning!
