Students in Ms. Conklin’s sixth grade class participated in a distance learning event with a representative from the Challenger Learning Center. The students worked on Operation Montserrat, an electronic mission that challenged them to apply their science and math skills to an authentic crisis situation. During the interactive Smartboard lesson, the student specialists served as members of a team: volcano, hurricane monitoring, evacuation and communication. The program is aimed to help build students’ enthusiasm for science and math, improve problem-solving and critical thinking skills and teaches the importance of teamwork and communication. They are now well trained and will strive to save the people of Montserrat from an approaching hurricane or an erupting volcano. Thank you to Mr. Kaiser and Ms. Conklin for organizing this educational opportunity.
