Biography

Project Title: CES Challenge Center Rendezvous with a Comet Mission Learning Innovation Grant Recipient

This school year the goal will be for students to foster collaboration between our school and community resources to enhance the quality of science and mathematics through inquiry-based learning. Sixth grade students will visit the Challenger Learning Center in Hazard, KY. Through space exploration activities, they will become inspired to learn more about science, mathematics and technology. With the increasing demands for students to become 21st Century learners, it is difficult as a facilitator in the classroom to motivate, engage and to provide real-world applications beyond the Core Academic Standards. Most of students have a marginal background knowledge of science concepts and limited access to outside resources and experiences. The Challenger Learning Center activities will offer a wide range of skills that align perfectly with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
