Chemistry is notoriously challenging for students because of the abstract nature of the content. Students have a hard time visualizing what is happening at the molecular level during experiments, and there is often a disconnect between students’ conceptual understanding of the content and their observations during experiments. With five Chromebooks to analyze the data collected with our Vernier lab equipment, my students will be able to spend more time developing testable questions and analyzing their lab data. My students will be able to focus on drawing connections between their observations during a lab, their data collected from the experiment, and their conceptual understanding of chemistry. The five Chromebooks requested in my project would go a long way toward meeting this need. For many of my students, who face limited access to technology at home, the classroom is where they will gain the critical exposure to computers they need to be competitive and successful in college and beyond. Most of my AP Chemistry students are planning to pursue a career in science or engineering, where they will be expected to use computers for data analysis and to communicate their work with their peers and the larger community. By familiarizing my students with computerized data collection tools and simulations while they are in high school, my students will be better prepared to succeed in college and in their future careers. Furthermore, these Chromebooks will support my students as they develop their academic collaboration skills. My chemistry students will be able to use these Chromebooks to collaborate on Google Docs, Google Slides, and Google Sheets. These tools are already used at my school on a regular basis; introducing them in the context of a science class will go far in preparing our students for collaboration during their postsecondary science and engineering experiences.
