In Hawaii it is common not to have air conditioning as we often have the trade winds rolling across the island. It's also expensive to have air conditioning out here. I know what you're thinking: "Yeah, but you live in Hawaii! You're so lucky!" Yes! That's true. Living here and making the science connections to all we do is truly incredible. But.... Think of the hottest day you've ever experienced, then imagine you're in a small classroom with 30 other students trying to work on science... it's hard to stay focused! These kids sit all day in hot classrooms and I can hardly blame them for going off task when the classroom is this warm. It's hard enough for me to stay focused and energized! By the end of the day the students are too hot and tired and don't want to do work. By donating to this project you will help students cool off and be able to use their brain to think about science and spend less time complaining about the heat. While we do have some ceiling fans in the classroom, they really only help the lucky few students who sit right below them. It becomes unfair for the students who are in the middle of the classroom with no air movement. Please share some aloha and help a first year teacher focus on teaching and not student dehydration! Mahalo for your kokua!
