Celebrate Black Teachers and Students

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Project

The students at my middle school are diverse in race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic levels. We have significant free lunch participants, and even though our school has limited technology, my students show limitless perseverance, potential, and productivity. Two years ago I started the first STEM class at my school out of discarded materials, and generous community donations. The course has become so popular we can offer three levels of STEM curriculum. With our growth, we are receiving a larger facility, and we would like to request additional project supplies for cool labs such as 3D Print Filament, 3D Print Filament storage, replacement parts, maintenance tools, and upgrade parts.
