Ms. Johnson from Charlotte NC is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Science Afair

My students need supplies like presentation boards and a fire table to construct their displays and document the scientific process for their end-of-the-year science experiments.

My Students

I serve a fun group of seventh-grade scholars in a Title I school near downtown Charlotte. Most of my scholars I teach come from low-income households and over 90% receive free or reduced rate lunch. They receive government assistance and some are even homeless. They are lacking the most basic school supplies like paper and pencil. As teachers, we often provide these materials. Many times they pay for these out of their own pockets. These students come to school escaping circumstances many of us could never imagine dealing with as an adult. For many of them, a school is a place of solace, a time of peace in a world of chaos.

My Project

The end of the year is very near. I've found that the closer we get, it's often very difficult to keep students engaged and learning. I've decided a good way to have some fun while still learning is to have the students conduct science experiments. They will be grouped together and have questions that they will investigate to get answers. They will then document and present their findings in a traditional science fair fashion. I'm excited to bring this to our school for the first time since I've been here.

I'm very excited to have my kids conduct true science fair experiments to finish off their 7th grade school year.

Many of my students have never been to a science fair, much less actually completed a full science fair project. I will walk them step-by-step through the scientific process that we learned about at the beginning of the year. They will be investigating their own questions about the science content they've been learning about all year long. They will document the entire process with the Fire tablet. This will truly bring us full-circle for a fantastic year-end. Thank you in advance for your support in this endeavor. I look forward to sharing their successes with you.
