About this Grantee

Ms. Holman and Ms. McDaniel create an interdisciplinary, project-based, technology unit to improve their at-risk students’ academic achievement. After learning the components of a research project, students investigate Earth and atmospheric cycles and participate in hands-on demonstrations of the concepts. To present their learning, students create iMovies or Power Point presentations about their work. Students continue to develop technology skills through investigations of plants and animals and forces of motion.
