Elements of  Photography

The purpose of this project is to teach fundamentals of photography to students. Students will have an opportunity to learn various techniques in photography and then have time to practice these techniques with their own creativity toward elements of photography including background,framing, and lighting effects.

LEGO Mindstorms Robotics

The LEGO Mindstorms project is intended to bring building and programming skills into the fourth and fifth grade classrooms in a fun, hands-on way. Students will design and build programmable robots using motors, sensors, wheels, gears and axles. They will learn to interpret 2-dimensional drawings to create a 3-dimensional model that they can test, revise, and trouble shoot to improve its performance.

Richardson Elementary

Invasive Species in the AuSable River

Students will be able to identify invasive species in the AuSable River and inform other members of the community how to prevent the spread of invasive species. This effort is connected to the community because it is a high tourist and recreational area full of visitors and fishermen, that may need to be educated or reminded of how to care for and preserve the beautiful natural characteristic that exists in our community: the AuSable River and Lake Huron Watershed.

Q-Ball Microphone

Introducing the Qball into the classroom would pay immediate dividends in all subjects, simply due to the fact that all students’ voices and ideas will be heard, and encouraged. The visual nature of the Qball will allow for the teacher to work with entire classes on communication and presentation skills, such as turn taking, giving somebody "the floor", and sharing "air time". We also hope that students can learn to
associate more content driven material with kinesthetic activity, more or less illustrating that all learning does not have to happen through taking notes or completing a worksheet.
