Original Grant Overview

Goal

The goal of this project is to increase student engagement in Science by allowing Lakewood's scholars to use a telescope to view the planets and stars.  

 

What will be done with my students

The telescope and equipment will be used to view the planets and stars. The scholars at Lakewood could benefit of viewing the solar system. By allowing the scholars to view the solar system, this will clear up many misconceptions scholars have about the solar system. This telescope and equipment will allow the scholars to be more in touch with the solar system than viewing a video or reading about it.  

 

Benefits to my students

The benefits of the telescope and equipment will clear up misconceptions and give the scholars an opportunity to view the planets without leaving campus. Scholars will be more engaged in studying the solar system. 

 

Describe the Students

The scholars at Lakewood Elementary School are low performers. The school is a Title 1 School and the students are low performers. During the school year, our scholars take many assessments and they have not performed well on the assessments on space.
