GIZMO Project a great success!!

Posted by erik.kenner on May 26, 2009 in Uncategorized

Hello all,

I just wanted to express my thanks to everyone who made the GIZMO Project a great success. The students overwhelmingly enjoyed the project (including the 90 elementary students from Jewett Elementary and 20 SPED students from Crater High who came to visit the GIZMO museum on May 15th). The 9th grade science students¬† felt that it was interesting, worthwhile, hands-on, built teamwork, and provided them with skills that they will use later in life (just to mention a few). I noticed that many “underachievers” really blossomed in the atmosphere that was created by the project. Personally, it gave me an opportunity to meet many new people in the community.

This kind of success makes me proud to be an educator and is only possible when we all come together for the sake of our kids. Thank you for your support and I look forward to building on what we have created in the years to come.

The CAHPS freshmen would like to invite you to visit our GIZMO exhibition on Friday, May 15th between the hours of 10-3:30. For the last few weeks, we have been creating hands-on science toys and will be exhibiting them at the Head Start building on the Crater High School campus. Come shoot the air cannon, take a ride on the hovercraft, or slip into the body bubble. It’s fun AND it’s learning. Walk-ins are welcome. Classes can be accomodated by appointment (email erik.kenner@district6.org).
