Classes or activities that might involve undergraduates:

    8th grade General Science, heterogenously mixed

Number of students in classes or activities:

Semester(s) you would be willing to work w/ or mentor undergraduates: Fall 1999 or Spring 2000

Type(s) of Partnership Desired: physics/chemistry

Proposed Collaboration:

    I work with 3 classes of heterogenously grouped 8th grade students. Classes are about 50 minutes in length but the time can be extended to two or three periods in length. The time of each class rotates on a daily basis.

    Topics to be covered are ecosystems, forces and motion, structure of matter, chemical and physical changes and conservation and transmission of energy. As this is the second time I will be teaching the physical sciences, I cannot predict exactly how I will cover these topics! But anyone who is interested in observing, participating or presenting any of these topics is always welcome.

    We also do science fair and any email help with this would be appreciated.

    I hope to update this often as I clarify my activities and topics.

    11/99 I am presently working on motion and forces

Type(s) of Partnership Desired:All science topic areas

Proposed Collaboration:

    I am looking for college science students who want an experience working with students in grades 5 and 6. We are conducting a Science Overnight on December 4-5. College students need to propose an idea for a hands-on science mini lesson - about 1 hour (can be 1.5 hours). Students will rotate through lessons. Some will be conducted by our staff and other volunteers. Members of our staff will be circulating through classes to deal with any behavior issues. College students need to worry about the quality of their lesson only. There will be about 8 students in each class. College students could expect to give their lesson twice (more if they really want the practice). We will provide the consumables (within reason) and whatever equipment we have. Students may have to bring their own equipment depending. College students can present either Friday night between 5:30 and 11:00 or Saturday morning 8:00 to Noon.
