iEvolve with STEM: Inquiry and Engagement to Invigorate and Optimize Learning for Everyone.
Funding through the National Science Foundation has allowed the District to partner with Bowling Green State University and others to provide a unique opportunity work directly with Sandusky City and Perkins Schools to improve student performance in science. Through adoption of a “citizen science” model supported by teacher professional development, students will get hands on experience with science through inquiry, data collection, and community research. This project involves over 6,000 students from grades 3rd through 8th . The District has the pleasure of working with grades 4th and 6th specifically on soils through investigation of school site rain gardens, collaboration of soil data collection with the Globe Program (GLOBE.gov), and precipitation monitoring through the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network (COCORAHS.org).
