One in a Million: Discovering Ancient Cultures and Modern Wonders

ExpandED Schools

We’re reaching our 1 millionth student this school year! This blog is part of a series where we journey throughout our expanded learning schools network and get to know some of our students. Meet Elijah, a 6th grader in Brooklyn. He’s 1 in a million! 

“We learned how to melt ice faster. We used noise. We’re also learning about rivers in social studies. I’m learning about the Nile River. Egyptians settled there to drink water, grow crops … agriculture. We made a chart about the answers. We compare the past to now. Now, they only use it for swimming and discoveries. But in the past, they settled near it for survival. The Nile River is the longest river and it can generate electricity.

My favorite subjects are science and social studies. I get to learn new things in science that I never knew existed in this world. Building is a bonus in science class. When I do experiments, I focus too much. I keep my eyes on my project. When I look away, there’s like wind – cold air – coming out of my eyes. I enjoy focusing on the projects.”
