Summer Science Camp uses Challenge Based Learning

During the summer, Mrs. Joanne Askew held a Science Camp for elementary students from around Clarksville.

In line with our current Challenge Based Learning implementation, Mrs. Askew’s students created their own challenge.

Overview

Our future depends on innovation and science drives innovation. But, research shows we are failing to keep a majority of students interested in math and science. We must increase engagement, build excitement and help students understand the importance of science. Mrs. Askew’s Summer Science Camp challenges students to find innovative ways to make science matter!

Big Idea

Science

The Essential Question
