LSU Health Sciences Center and New Orleans Public
Schools/ Recovery School District Science
Partnership
  • Community Outreach Project
  • Sponsored By
  • LSUHSC Graduate Students and School of Graduate
    Studies

No Child Left Behind
-President George Bush

Mission
  • The federal government encourages state and
    local universities and colleges to share the
    responsibility of math and science education for
    public elementary, middle and high school
    students. The mission of the LSUHSC-NOPS Science
    Partnership is to assist in a nationwide
    implementation of math and science educational
    reform.

4
Math and Science Partnership
  • The purpose of the partnership is to assist in a
    nationwide implementation of math and science
    educational reform.
  • The federal government encourages state and local
    universities and colleges to share the
    responsibility of math and science education for
    public elementary, middle and high school
    students.

5
Why every Grad Student needs to be a part of this
community project
  • Giving back to the community
  • Fostering education in science
  • Representing the Graduate School
  • Making a difference!!!

6
Activities During the Year
  • First Quarter Establish a schedule for the new
    year Graduate student/Elementary school teacher
    meetings and workshops.
  • Second Quarter Graduate students begin working
    with the teachers. School science fair.
  • Third Quarter Graduate students continue
    working in the classrooms assist with
    preparation for the science portion of the LEAP
    exam.
  • Fourth Quarter Graduate students organize the
    field trip for 4th graders to visit the research
    centers at the LSU Health Sciences Center.

Forces and Motion
10
Do they have the same speed?
Do they have the same velocity?
Jills Speed- 10 miles/hour
Jacks Speed- 10 miles/hour
11
Force
  • Forces change motion. Pushing and Pulling are
    kinds of forces.
  • Force causes acceleration.

12
Friction
  • Friction is a force that resists the motion of
    objects when the objects are touching each other.
    If Jack doesnt pedal, the bike will eventually
    stop because of the friction between the wheels
    and ground.

13
Review
  • 1. Push and Pull are types of ________.
  • 2. When you are talking about both speed and
    direction, you are talking about ___________.
  • 3. The distance an object travels divided by the
    time it takes to travel is its________.
  • 4. _________ force pulls the Earth and Moon
    towards each other.
  • 5. The measurement of gravity acting on an object
    is the objects __________.

Post-Katrina
  • For the 2005-2006 school year, 107 out of 117 New
    Orleans Public Schools were designated failing
    schools and transferred to Recovery School
    District.
  • Banneker Elementary and John Dibert were LSUHSC
    adopted schools beginning in the 2006-2007 school
    year.
  • We curently only have enough volunteers to staff
    Banneker Elementary, but others schools need our
    help!

20
Success Stories
  • The 4th grade students Crocker Elementary were
    awarded 1st, 2nd and 3rd place trophies at the
    2003 District Science Fair.
  • More students have passed or scored at the
    masters level on the Math Science section of
    the LEAP exam.
  • As a result of the academic improvement in all
    areas of the LEAP exam and other assessment
    tests, Crocker was removed from the list of
    schools in corrective action.

21
Success Stories
McDonough 7 Science Fair
22
  • Representatives from the LSUHSC/NOPS Science
    Partnership participated in a panel during the
    SFN Science Education workshop to discuss
    strategies for establishing successful Math and
    Science partnerships between local universities
    and colleges and the public school system.
  • Society for Neuroscience National Meeting 2003
    Science Education Workshop
  • Our Partnership was the only one emphasizing
    GRADUATE STUDENT involvement!!!
  • An abstract about or program was chosen for an
    oral presentation at the Eighth International
    Research Conference on Service-learning and
    Community Engagement
