Goal

The goal of this grant is to give the gifted scholars of Campbell Park and Fairmount Park Elementary Schools the opportunity to synthesize their learning on Space and Innovation through experiential learning in Science. Scholars will be able to engage in authentic, first-hand, sensory-based learning in a collaborative atmosphere integrating STEM with reading and writing skills.

 

 

What will be done with my students

First scholars will take an exciting tour of the Solar System in the Saunders planetarium having amazing views of our planets and the denizens of the Kuiper Belt! They will Learn why Mercury is not the hottest planet in the
Solar System and why the exploration of Mars is essential to the future of humans.
Furthermore, scholars will become a NASA engineer for the day. They will build and design a Mars rover using their imagination while problem-solving challenges so that their robots can travel across various terrains to collect samples. It is an experience where they will discover amazing places in our solar system while exploring the field of robotics.

 

 

Benefits to my students

There are too many benefits to list but the most essential and critical benefits to our scholars can be summarized by The Australian Science Teacher’s Journal article on the importance of experiential learning. "It will provide firsthand experience, stimulate interest and motivation in science, add relevance to learning and interrelationships, strengthen observation and perception skills, and promote personal (social) development (Michie, 1998)." In addition, math and science as well as reflective writing scores may improve due to this field trip.

 

 

Describe the Students

Our scholars are gifted/advance academics students who attend transformational zoned schools. These schools may need additional support to ensure that all students achieve 100% success. Furthermore, both schools are under
The Scale Up for Success Initiative. This initiative is a model of support, designed in collaboration with the Juvenile Welfare Board that focuses on increasing achievement for all students with an emphasis on closing the achievement gap and turning around low-performing schools.
