Teacher Bio - Ashlie Arkwright links students' real-world experiences with scientific principles to make science relevant and engaging. For example, her students recently completed a unit of study on motion and forces by designing and building working models of roller coasters. As part of her focus on environmental science, Arkwright's students participate in a national Eco Challenge competition each year. Collectively they design and implement a campaign encouraging people to make one small change that has a positive impact on the environment, such as switching from plastic bags to reusable lunch containers at school.
