2015 Discretionary Awards

Wind and Oar Pilot Project - $3990

Jill Altman, Project Manager
Rowe Middle School

A recent grant from the North Clackamas Education Foundation with matching support from the Clackamas Rotary has launched the Wind and Oar pilot project at Rowe Middle School. About 35 seventh and eighth grade students and three teachers will meet three times a week to build a ten foot wooden boat. When the boat is completed, it will be auctioned off to support the program.

This program will be integrated into students’ mathematics class. Through practical hands-on experience, students will enhance their skills in algebra, geometry and fractions as well as build communication, teamwork and responsibility while learning measurements and how to use carpentry tools. The project will help ensure eighth grade students are algebra ready, one of the Districts key performance indicators.
