Statewide Reach for Local Impact

FIND IT FUND IT FLORIDA

The goal is to increase student knowledge in regards to mathematics (statistics) and science (force and motion), as well as give the students an opportunity to have a positive interaction with their community, through a field trip to a local Rays game.

The tickets were donated to our students by the Rays Association, however, we are in need of transportation (bus) funding for both the students and the adults.

Goal

The goal is to increase student knowledge in regards to mathematics (statistics) and science (force and motion), as well as give the students an opportunity to have a positive interaction with their community, through a field trip to a local Rays game.

The tickets were donated to our students by the Rays Association, however, we are in need of transportation (bus) funding for both the students and the adults. 

 

What will be done with my students

We will be taking our students to a Rays game. They will be provided with statistics sheets to keep track of various data points throughout the game, and those results will be analyzed during a follow-up mathematics lesson. We will also be discussing the way force and motion come into play during a baseball game in a follow-up science lesson. Finally, we will use the Rays game experience to help build a positive sense of community both in our classrooms as well as in their home lives. 

 

Benefits to my students

Students will have an opportunity to see real world uses and applications of both mathematics and science. Not only that, they will be able to participate in a positive community event. 

 

Describe the Students

Our students come from highly underprivileged and struggling family lives, and we are trying to reinforce good community values as well as the importance of education and the role it plays in our past, present, and future lives. 

 

Budget Narrative

The entirety of the budget is for bus transportation to and from the game. The tickets were donated to our students, so that is not an additional expense.
