My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. I teach at an inner city school in DC where 94% of our students are minorities and 78% are classified as economically disadvantaged.

They all come from low income homes, where many parents work multiple jobs and have little time to attend to them.

Despite so many hardships, I want to inspire them to be their best.

They only want to be in school because they want to stay out of trouble. I want to help them see learning science as fun and interesting as possible so they will want to "be all they can be" and strengthen their love of learning through literacy, math, science technology, and much, much more.

My Project

In the Apply Alternative Energy Kit, they can apply heat transfer to real world practice and adding edibles always makes learning memorable. In the Heat Transfer Kit, the two chambers can be setup at different temperatures. Both containers have thermometers, so that the starting temperature of both containers can be tracked. Based on time, the students can observe how the temperature changes over time.

The more hands-on we can make learning, the more students will learn!

Within our Physical Science concentration, students need to be able to differentiate among radiation, conduction, and convection, specifically understanding the mechanisms by which heat and energy is transferred. The basic definition of conduction states that it is the transfer of thermal energy due to collisions between particles of matter. It sounds complicated but seeing is not only believing but understanding.
