Coosa County Schools Science Coach Shelley Wood submitted applications for the Lake Mitchell Home Owners and Boat Owners (HOBO) Association grant on behalf of science teachers Jacques Mitchell and Mary White; everyone involved is very thankful that both applications were granted funds.
Mr. Mitchell’s grant will cover the Growing in the Garden project in which his ninth grade biology, eleventh grade earth science and twelfth grade environmental science students will work in the greenhouse once a week maintaining and cultivating plants they have grown from seeds. Once the garden is harvested, the students will enjoy the fruits of their labor by making and enjoying salads from fresh organic greens and trimmings. In addition to lessons in science, students will also build an appreciation for the hard work and discipline necessary to grow crops.
Mrs. White’s grant will cover the Motion Measuring project in which her ninth grade physical science, eleventh grade chemistry and twelfth grade physics students will use the motion sensors to determine the time needed to travel certain distances in order to calculate velocity and acceleration when studying kinematics, dynamics, momentum, and free fall. The project will enable students to gather accurate data and to make accurate calculations. In addition, the motion sensors will expose students to more sophisticated measuring devices such as the ones they will use at the collegiate level or in the workplace.

Coosa County Schools would like to extend a special thank you to the Lake Mitchell HOBO Association for providing grants that enable us to provide enrichment opportunities to our students.
