Star Project - GLCPS Cost Team 1
Nominated by Diana Cost, Teacher at Global Learning Charter Public School
What makes this a star project?
This team worked with their scientist during several experiments. They communicated and questioned back and forth respectfully and wholeheartedly. Our scientist works in the Netherlands but she took the time in her evening to Skype in with Team 1 so they could hold a science meeting to discuss their investigations.
How can other teams learn from what this team has done or how they have gone about their project?
This team shared responsibility for all the work they did. Each member communicated with Monica their scientist. Monica in turn interacted with the team, sharing her expertise, sending links to help students understand, and sky ping with the team and the whole class. This interaction caused all students to take risks by sharing their thoughts aloud without hesitation. They are talking like scientists and designing testable experiments is the norm in our classroom.
