A teacher's successful story

Many of our teachers encourage their students to conduct scientific inquiry activities through the knowledge and skills they learned from this project. Following is one example, wrote by our cohort 3 teacher Lidia Fuego, a science teacher from I.S. 349. She took several students to present their exit projects to Columbia University for a STEM Science Fair Project Showcase. Two of their projects won first and third places.

Following please read the letter from Lidia Fuego:

I am thrilled to announce my student’s accomplishment at the 2013-2014 STEM Project Showcase on at Columbia University on May 14 2014.

The Office of English Language Learners and the Division of Specialized Instruction and Student support at Columbia University presented this opportunity to English Language Learners in 7, 8, and 9 grades in New York City and I took advantage of it.

This event provided a congenial setting for ELL students to present and defend their scientific inquiry to science, math, and technology teachers, as well as to interested members of community based organizations and students from local colleges.

I brought four projects to the event. One of them about photosynthesis and plant growth; the other one about water quality. These two projects were awarded first and third places at the award ceremony.

The STEM Project Showcase was a great opportunity for my students to shine and show their work in an environment that was safe and professional to them. According to them this experience was “life changing and motivated toward future STEM careers”

I wanted to share my excitement with Dr. Shiang-Kwei Wang and DR. Hui-Yin Hsu. I believe that my experiences working on the Cyber-Enabled Learning Project as part of a cohort 3 teachers has provided me with some of the tools that I used during this Science Fair Project.

Thank you both.

Sincerely,
