Science & Engineering Guest Speaker Visits Park Western

Our fifth grade students recently had a visit from Mr. Michael Fitzgerald, the chief architect of the Space Elevator and Enterprise Systems. The Space Elevator is a vision of how mankind will import and export goods and materials to and from Earth 30 or 40 years in the future. A tether, or cable, would be placed in space and extend down to Earth, allowing climber cars to move along it up into space, deliver their cargo, and return to Earth. Various gates on the tether are planned for the release of cargo that is intended to reach the moon, Mars, and possibly other planets.

 

In preparation for the visit, students watched a number of scientific and informational videos, and researched aspects of the topic, such as gravity, materials, and structural feasibility. They were armed with questions and were eager to see the Powerpoint slides and diagrams Mr. Fitzgerald provided. All were amazed that this will most likely become a reality in their lifetime.

 

Here is the email Mr. Fitzgerald sent to his colleagues after his visit:

QUOTE: I was at Harbor / Park Western Magnet on Monday — for about hour. — last period of the day. The audience was about 40 5th graders. I only showed them pictures ... including V 30 After 15 minutes ... I said “are there any questions?” This scheme was planned — Ms. Miller had planted the idea that they should come with questions. We got questions!! When I asked — every hand shot up — and I was pummeled with Q’s for the next 45 minutes. How - How much - When - Where - robots — people — why — and on. I cannot tell you how amazed I was at the quality of the questions and the excitement in their eyes. They even figured out they would be alive when the first one is built. It was humbling!!!! END QUOTE

 

Park Western continues to strive to engage students by offering unique opportunities like this one. With a commitment to science, math and technology, students are set on a course that will lead the way to a successful future. What an amazing way to get kids thinking, asking, and learning about planning today and creating tomorrow.

The 5th grade class would like to thank the Port of Los Angeles for their donation of $1,000 toward the Catalina Island Marine Institute field trip last month.  Due to the generosity of the Port of LA and other donors, all students who wanted to attend the trip were able to do so.  The 5th graders returned from the trip full of new knowledge of sharks, rays, fish, algae and plankton, and their habitat, the ocean.
