Great Impact Marks Return of Immersive Education Experience

Business

Wilkinson Elementary School students and teachers returned from spring break on Monday, March 22, to discover a meteor had landed on campus and created a crater. The Education Foundation of Sarasota County funded the “Great Impact” simulated meteor landing, a weeklong schoolwide immersive grant designed to bring earth space science and geology to life for Wilkinson students in kindergarten through fifth grade. Immersive events are constructed in a manner whereby students are able to “discover” the event much in the way actual scientific discoveries transpire in real time. They observe, ask questions, and make plans as to the best way to examine and study the “discovery” in subsequent days.
