SCEF Funds Help Arundel First Graders Design Moon Colony That is Out of This World

Ms. Higginbotham, a first grade teacher at Arundel, used funding from the SCEF Educator Innovation Grant to take her outer space unit to the next level: to the moon to be exact. Thanks to SCEF, Ms. Higginbotham was able to invest in a webcam and a subscription to Nepris, a company that virtually connects classrooms with math and science professionals for interactive discussions. She then transformed her classroom into a makerspace and tasked her students with creating a moon colony.  Students worked in small groups to build different parts of the colony, including: living space, a recreation area, space for plants and food, a laboratory, and vehicles.
