I Am What I Learn

Dr. Lodge McCammon (http://www.iamlodge.com) is one talented scientist and no stranger to TPT. He contributed some great nano songs to DFTV Nano. (See Scale and Nanotechnology.)

Earlier this year, Lodge worked with North Carolina middle school teacher Jamie Hall and a group of his students to answer: Why is education important to my future? They looked at President Obama’s “Back to School Event” speech and created an original song.

“I Will Contribute” was recorded and performed by Dr. Lodge and four middle school students (Elena, Hannah R., Caroline, and Hannah J.). The music video was created and performed by two North Carolina 8th graders (Keturah and Megan).

SciGirls applauds their efforts! (See more videos from the I Am What I Learn contest.)
