DC Council Education Committee Budget Hearing – Testimony by Preston Melchoir-Fisher, CHM at Logan EC

My name is Preston Melchior-Fisher, I live in Brookland and I am a 6th grade student at Capital Hill Montessori.  As President Obama said, “Leadership tomorrow depends on how we educate our students today, especially in science, technology, engineering and math.” Our school has minimal equipment to learn most of these four subjects. Without a real science lab, we, our middle school cannot thrive, or our current primary and elementary students when they get to middle grades. We will be behind the rest of the world in science, engineering and the like. Our school needs a science lab to learn STEM, so that we can excel in all types of sciences, such as biology, chemistry, archeology, astronomy and geology, as well as engineering and technology. Thank you for listening.
