MicroGlobalScope Inspires Kids to want to Learn Authentically

Science House Foundation MicroGlobalScope grantee and collaborator Jerry Pavlon-Blum of New York City’s Gateway School describes how our MicroGlobalScope program is changing the lives of his students. In this moving video, Jerry describes how connecting with kids around the world provides surprise incentives for his students, many of whom have social and learning disabilities.

Jerry is also transforming the way that kids think of science. After the science module, Jerry had the students take the microscope to their drama and literature class to think about science as more integrated into their lives. He tells the story of how the kids were so inspired by the integration of art and science that they made a play out of their microscopy discoveries.

Art and Science are augmenting the learning experiences of these kids.

We are thrilled to be collaborating with Jerry and the important work he is doing to take kids on their own terms and help them reach their potential.
