Poets Across Time Poet Study
by: ashley.gorman@hancock.kyschools.us

Students collaborated on an analysis project involving 29 poets throughout history to build content knowledge and critical thinking skills. Students worked on the live binder simultaneously, focusing on their own poets who they drew randomly, but were able to trade with other students to get a poet in whom they were most interested. Range of thinking grew from understanding – creation as they developed sample AP prompts and developed arguments for connections between their poets and modern/contemporary artists.

The Process-Project Based Learning
by: Randy Evans

This is not just a video project, it is much more! The integration of multimedia technology and teaching of the common core content merge in project based learning.

During the 2013 Kentucky Space Movie Project at Morehead State University, student teams from around the area participate in the first four steps of creating a video documentary. This video illustrates how the common core, teaching strategies, integration of technology, multidisciplinary instruction, collaboration, learning styles, etc. are weaved throughout the process. Watch as the students move from novice to proficient and begin to reach toward the distinguished level in their work.

The significant point is, the majority of the work is achieved in the first four steps of the process, before we even touch a video camera. The steps of the process can easily be modified to accommodate any common core content in a project based learning activity.

Chemical Reactions and Moonshine
by: chris.lacy@morgan.kyschools.us

Be it the distribution, questions of legality, or family heritage involved, nearly all my students know more than I do about White Lightning. This project takes a controversial topic and creates a lesson that teaches students the chemistry behind rates of reactions and the factors that affect it.

Poverty
by: tasha.ferrell@menifee.kyschools.us

Are We Alone? Kepler and the Search for Extrasolar Planets
by: Mr. Burns’ Class

In 2009, NASA launched the Kepler Mission with one main goal in mind: to find out if there are habitable planets orbiting other stars in our galaxy. Thanks to the technology we now have available, for the first time in human history, we have the ability to detect planets outside our own solar system. Mankind has always been intrigued by the question of our place in the universe. NASA’s Kepler Mission is a huge step in finding out if the universe is teeming with life or if it is unique to our own planet. Where is Kepler looking for these planets? How does it find them? What are the implications of finding these habitable planets, or even life itself, elsewhere in the universe? What amazing discoveries has Kepler already made? All of these questions are discussed in this new documentary produced by students from Farristown Middle School.

They discussed how education has changed;from the value of an education to the technology that we use today. The students journeyed through time with those who laid the foundation of education today. This seven minute video shows how we can either preserve our educational history or destroy the very foundation in which numerous generations paved the way for a greater good.

Revealing Planet Red
by: Mrs. Harris’ 8th grade team

A team of five 8th grade students from Foley Middle School took on the exciting task of making an original documentary about the explorations and findings from the Mars’ Missions. Mars has long been one of the great mysteries of our galaxy, yet through the use of the rovers, such as the Opportunity, we have gained a great deal of knowledge. For example, after the discovery of gypsum, a mineral formed in water, scientist now have proof that there was once water sustained on the surface of Mars. Nasa’s newest rover, Curiosity, is scheduled to descend in August of 2012. What will come from the findings of this incredible new rover? Does Curiosity hold the key to gaining an understanding of the Martian environment and it’s ability to sustain life?

Space Movie: Robotic Astronauts
by: Mr. Fugate’s Group

Robonaut is a humanoid robotic development project conducted by the Dextrous Robotics Laboratory at NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC) in Houston, Texas. Robonaut differs from other current space-faring robots in that, while most current space robotic systems (such as robotic arms, cranes and exploration rovers) are designed to move large objects, Robonaut’s tasks require more dexterity. The core idea behind the Robonaut series is to have a humanoid machine work alongside astronauts. Its form factor and dexterity are designed such that Robonaut can use space tools and work in similar environments suited to astronauts.

Visionary
by: Sarah Cox

Visionary

We were uncertain of the future. We were so uncertain, in fact, that we engineered an advanced life form that outlives us all, even in different atmospheres. Curiosity got the best of us, and we created a group of individuals that are known as The Visionaries. They can control whose future they see, and they have power over these premonitions. Their eyes often glaze over in a seemingly solid gold lens. Their skin breaks out into vivid colors and a thin, shimmering gold exoskeleton. They are no doubt strange, but they hold the entire future in their hands.

Whatever that future may be?

An original story about a society living on a distant planet named Prontius. The people that lived there once came from earth to occupy it, and have lived there for centuries. However, some people had chosen to stay on earth and still continue living there.

Years later, many people on Prontius decided that they wanted to go back to earth, knowing that some had stayed and continue residing there. Civil war broke out between the people who wanted to continue living on Prontius and the ones who wanted to go back to earth. The side that wished to continue living on Prontius won, and even though centuries have passed since the civil war, the politics are still complex and all space crafts are banned from leaving the planet.

The main character is a son of the leader of the main nation on Prontius. Both he and his lower class friend believe in going back to earth, despite the fact his parents enforce the idea of staying on Prontius. The characters had made a detailed plan to escape, however only one of them could go. The story takes place five years after she made the escape.

Mother
by: Laura Duke

On a journey through the ever-growing Multiverse, we come to a world where women, rather than having children, give birth to new universes. This woman is in the process of creating a universe, which is budding from her third eye. My inspiration comes from the various theories of a multiverse, especially the idea that there are parallel universes. In the background, the blackness represents the absence of anything, or nothingness. Since the third eye is an energy center, or chakra, it’s symbolic of the life source that maintains the existence of the universe. Her third eye contains a black hole that serves as the entrance to a wormhole to the new universe being created, while the exit at the other end is a “white hole”. Unlike humans, this race is without physical and mental boundaries, which gives them godlike abilities.

How Can we feed the world?
by: Cathy McCune

Students in the 6th grade Academy at Sebastian Middle School were met with a global question when they came to school this year.  How can we feed the world’s growing population?  To identify the problems with food availability, food justice and sustainable farming methods, students wrote a series of essays, conducted lots of research, went on a field trip,  and had a classroom visitor.  Students finalized their proposals through persuasive writing and a little engineering. Through this project-based thematic unit, students have improved in their ability to support arguments with claims and evidence through the investigation of a real-world problem.

Communicating in Subject Matter
by: Dataseam

Amber Myer makes the case for learning to communicate within your subject matter.  As a space science systems engineer, she must communicate to other engineers and non-engineers about her work.  Communication is a skill that will always be useful.

Find And Follow Your Passion
by: Dataseam

Amber Myre found her passion for space systems engineering at Morehead State University with the help of teachers and mentors.  And as she puts it, “what can be cooler than space.”
