Project Description

Middle School

Primary Applicant: Linda Brooks
Student Population: 6th, 7th, 8th grade students
Amount: $8,085

This grant funded Epson Solos, digital microscopes and related technology tools to create an interactive learning environment for all Middle School science students. The project explored ways to extend learning beyond the classroom walls through active online investigations, class collaborations to build science resources, and the participation in science simulations.
Impact: In year one, over 800 students in the Middle School have benefited from the tools and resources from this project. Teachers were able to enhance the curriculum through virtual investigations and problem solving of real world scenarios. Students had additional opportunities to collaborate as a large group and share their learning.
