Science Fair 2.0 – A Year in Space – Grades 4-7 – Fall 2021 – 10 Weeks
Wednesday, October 6 2021 @ 3:00PM – Saturday, January 1 2022 @ 4:30PM EDT
Grade/Level:4 – 7
Day of Week:Wednesday
Class Times:3:00PM – 4:30PM (ET)
Gone are the days of the dreaded science fair project!
In this course, students will explore the wonders and challenges of living in space and sharpen their research and problem-solving skills. Additionally, students will use critical thinking as they identify a specific problem faced by astronauts and then work to create a unique solution to this problem. The course will culminate in an individual final project, which students will present to classmates.
This course will be a mixture of lively class discussions and group brainstorming sessions. Students will be encouraged to actively participate in live classes.
Students will discover new ideas about life in space, implement the Engineering Design Process, and use creativity and persistence to develop an innovative solution to a real-world problem. Students will learn how to identify credible sources of information while performing research on a chosen topic. Students will craft a written paragraph related to their research topic and learn how to create a works cited list.
Students should expect to spend 1 – 2 hours each week on reading assignments and project research. Students will be given periodic written assignments throughout the course, culminating in an individual final class project. Students will present this final project to classmates.
NOTE: Registration deadline is September 10, 2020.
There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.
M. LOVED your class. She felt so empowered to give it her all because of your amazing ability to teach and encourage the students. M. learned so much, not just about space but also on how to complete different kinds of projects, work in groups, and give presentations. Thank you so much for an amazing semester!!!
My daughter loved this class so much. Ms. Brittany is an amazing teacher and my daughter felt very empowered to go above and beyond with all her projects because she was so invested in this class. Wish there would be a 3.0 version 🙂 THANK YOU!!!
Great class with a great teacher!
My 11 year old son loved this class with miss brittany! She does an amazing job of keeping the kids engaged and interacting throughout the class. She really wants all her students to enjoy the class and feel successful. She (and her son) went out of her way to help my son finish his final project after our computer died and took his project with it. We can’t wait to do more classes with her!
The BEST teacher my daughter has had so far in any online class…
Caroline is absolutely LOVING your (Brittany Robbins) Science Fair 2.0 class. She said you are the BEST teacher she has had so far in any online class. Thank you so much – because of you, she’s identified what really works for her in online classes and I’m so grateful! She really enjoys the instruction, discussion, interaction, and topic. It’s the perfect storm of learning for her! YAY! Thank you!!!
