The goal is to have our K-3 Talent Development and Gifted students at Campbell and Fairmount Park elementary school participate in two hands on activities at MOSI that cover the following standards: SC.P.13.1, SC.P.12.1, SC.P.13.4, MAFS.MD.2.3, MA.A.1, SC.E.5, SC.K.N, and CC.2.N. These standards goals ultimately will ensure our scholars experience will become immersed in differentiated and relevant learning opportunities outside the general education curriculum in the form of a field trip. Furthermore, the goal will will ultimately be project based. This type of learning approach will provide a natural opportunity for critical creative thinking, problem solving, and leadership development which are skills necessary for workplace success in the 21st century.

Goal

The goal is to have our K-3 Talent Development and Gifted students at Campbell and Fairmount Park elementary school participate in two hands on activities at MOSI that cover the following standards: SC.P.13.1, SC.P.12.1, SC.P.13.4, MAFS.MD.2.3, MA.A.1, SC.E.5, SC.K.N, and CC.2.N. These standards goals ultimately will ensure our scholars experience will become immersed in differentiated and relevant learning opportunities outside the general education curriculum in the form of a field trip. Furthermore, the goal will will ultimately be project based. This type of learning approach will provide a natural opportunity for critical creative thinking, problem solving, and leadership development which are skills necessary for workplace success in the 21st century.  

 

What will be done with my students

2nd and 3rd grade students will attend two hands on activities involving mathematics, science, reading and writing skills aligned with the standards for minutes:

1. Be the problem solvers of tomorrow! Build and code a dynamic science rover that follows your command. Explore
different ways scientists and engineers reach remote places using robots. Investigate how sensors work with hands-on and “minds-on” experimentation. SC.P.13.1, SC.P.12.1, SC.P.13.4, MAFS.MD.2.3

2. Up, Up, and Away (Space)
Explore the world of space travel through the eyes of an astronaut. Learn the parts of a rocket and then blast rockets up in the air. Finish your journey with a taste of astronaut ice cream. MA.A.1, SC.E.5, SC.K.N, SC.2.N
 

 

Benefits to my students

Scholars will be able to learn in a specialized mathematical, scientific environment and be provided differentiated and relevant learning opportunities from experts in the STEM field. The exposure to a field trip like this will enable our scholars to expand and increase their critical thinking skills and potentially grow and further develop their gifted characteristics in problem solving, questioning techniques, and knowledge of real world connections and applications. 

 

Describe the Students

The scholars who will attend this program are from transformation zones who have been identified as gifted or scholars of Talent Development. Transformation Schools are schools that may need extra support with an emphasis on closing the achievement gap as they strive to ensure that students are prepared and poised for 100 percent success.
Gifted students have been identified by the screener NNAT (Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test) and/or the K-BIT (Kaufman Brief Intelligence Test). Students who score a 90% or higher on the screener, get evaluated by a licensed Florida psychologist for an I. Q. Test to determine gifted eligibility.

Talent Development student are chosen at the beginning of the school year based on criteria from the district gifted office and MAP ( Measure of Academic Progress) scores in reading and math. 

 

Budget Narrative

The grant would allow scholars to travel to Tampa on a chartered bus not constricted to Pinellas County bus hours so they may participate in two hands-on mathematical and science activities led by experts in the field s space and robotics.
