Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 180

Students in class and in an afterschool club were exposed to scientific concepts such as Newtons' Laws through practical application in this project. Concepts taught in science classes were supported through this experiential learning activity to support student understadning and thereby supportiing student preparation for Florida Standardized Assessments.

 

Original Grant Overview

Goal

To engage students in fun, interesting, and attention-getting activities to excite their interest in STEM education and STEM careers while investigating force and motion. 

 

What will be done with my students

Students will study Newton's Laws while designing mini air powered dragsters. Students will investigate aerodynamic design and create graphs of races while manipulating variables.  

 

Benefits to my students

Students will combine mathematics with science, technology, and engineering in a project-based lesson. Students will develop their interest in potential high school, college and career paths in areas of engineering and design.  

 

Describe the Students

Medium to high level, 6th grade students.
