Wipro Fellow Aimee Ferguson hosts STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Art Math) KIT PARTY with fellow 3rd grade teachers at Jefferson School, New Rochelle (Dec 2017)

What a fabulous day it was. Third Grade teachers were able to take part in STEAM activities and celebrate Science. We had a wonderful time exploring various materials, reminiscing on great Science memories, asking questions, and planning for the future. Of course, everyone went home with a goodie bag and kits to continue their work. What a hit it was.

Science Can Be Meaningful to All. We just have to be Open, Collaborate, and Have Fun! My WIPRO GPS project is truly continuing...

Elizabeth Barrett-Zahn receives 2016 Anton Banko Award

Elizabeth Barrett-Zahn, the science coordinator for Columbus Elementary School, has been selected to receive the 2016 Anton Banko Award for excellence in elementary school science teaching. The award is given by the Science Teachers' Association of New York State and will be presented at a ceremony in Rochester in the fall. It includes a $1500 grant for classroom use. Zahn, who has been with the New Rochelle school district for 24 years, gave credit for the award to the amazing professional development she's had over the years. She has worked during the summer in science labs at Columbia University, participated in programs that took her to classrooms in Malaysia, Singapore and Japan, and took part in a leadership program at Mercy College (WIPRO). "As an educational practitioner, I am continually improving my practice through experiences, challenges and collaboration with others," Zahn said. "Teaching children to think critically and creatively is at the heart of all learning. To do this, we must also be willing to take risks and extend our own learning to beyond the classroom walls."
