Teachers Receive Best Practice Grants
Teachers Receive Best Practice Grants

Jacyln Hughes’s grant will be used for a scientific engineering robotics project. Students will construct robots within small groups to enhance their skills to analyze, collect data, make predictions, summarize, and question. The overall goals of the project are for the individual robots to function mechanically and for students to learn skills to strengthen their success after high school. Students in David Lucci’s class will have the opportunity to travel all over the world without leaving the classroom. View-Master Virtual Reality Viewers will be purchased enabling students to immerse themselves in a 360-degree interactive environment and explore amazing virtual worlds including historical landmarks, outer space, foreign countries, and the deep sea. Through Melissa Brown’s grant project, students will investigate and understand the operation of simple and compound machines found in everyday life. The students will use gears, wheels and axles, levers, and pulleys to create and operate their own simple machines. Congratulations to Jaclyn, David, and Melissa!
