Lego Math Kits
"Students in grades 1 and 2 are learning so much with the Lego math kits generously funded by the Norwell Education Fund grant. They are exploring concepts such as data and graphing, adding and subtracting, and patterns- all while having fun. In grade 1, students have built and analyzed patterns with stairs while Grade 2 students used skip counting to help their Lego friends run around the track. Because of this generous NEF grant, students are able to engage in great math discourse and develop skills in the Mathematical Practices."

"I am grateful for the support from the Norwell Education Foundation for the funding of the thermal infrared camera project. The cameras have been instrumental in helping students to visualize heat transfer and to apply that knowledge to improving performance in the physical sciences. Using the cameras, students can now see convection and conduction in action, as well as visualize energy changes due to chemical reactions. The NEF funding has allowed us to innovate and pioneer new experiments using this new and exciting technology."

Reality Works Babies
"Thank you Norwell Education Foundation! Your grants have allowed me to bring the developmental psychology unit “alive” with the purchase of RealCare Babies. The RealCare Babies have internal computer simulators that require our students to feed, burp, change, and comfort them on a random schedule. While we learn about the Harlow and Ainsworth and other studies, students reflect on how their parenting can demonstrate the psychological principles learned in class."
