Summer Academic Enrichment Program

Mythbusters

Virtual version

Description: In Mythbuster's class we will be using the Computer Supported Collaborative Science model to collect data on experiments students do at their own homes. Data will be collected via Google Drive resources (forms, spreadsheets, documents, presentation tools) so that students will be able to perform analysis on data collected by the entire class. Students will be able to virtually discuss and collaborate on forming conclusions from their experiments using comment and chat features built into Google web products. 

My goal for needed materials is to use resources already available in student's homes: coins, foil, paperclips, and common kitchen materials will be used to learn and conduct experiments. A list of needed items will be posted so parents can plan accordingly.
