Wilkes, John M.
The goal was to promote technological literacy, make science education fun, and identify talented students interested in science and foster their efforts starting with 5th grade. Our team was able to create activity kits that included materials, storyline, activities, and concept sheets. These kits go with several key chapters in the 5th grade textbook that is used by the Worcester Public Schools. The theme connecting the units was a story line involving the challenge of building a lunar base out of local lunar materials.
