Janice Mak, 2016 AEF Arizona Teacher of the Year semifinalist, is a STEM teacher at Explorer Middle School in Paradise Valley Unified School District. Late last week, Janice hosted the Google Expeditions Pioneer Program for her students at Explorer Middle School. Two other Paradise Valley Schools also participated in the program: Fireside Elementary School and North Ranch Elementary School.
The Pioneer Program allowed students to take a virtual field trip with Google Goggles, ‘exploring’ places like the Amazon, underwater shipwrecks, and Mars. Check out the photos below to see how Explorer Middle School students explored beyond the classroom!
