I teach in a Title I school where the majority of the students are on free and reduced lunch. Many students are first generation college students. They are always eager to learn. To give them an opportunity to continue success in all STEM classes, supplies are needed.
We also have a high minority rate, over 85%, funding is always an issue.
Many of my students come from single parent homes where they also work to help pay family expenses. Asking them to pay for an additional resource would take money needed for food and utilities out of their pockets.
With the usage and accessibility of the MacBook Pro, the students' math and science retention will improve tremendously because technology will be available to the students to use on a daily basis. Having access will increase the focus, excitement, and collaboration for the students to also complete their science projects with technology integration for the district science fair.
The students' imagination and learning capabilities will reach higher heights while they are learning computer programming skills.
The chance to use modern day technology will allow the students to produce the very best in science/math fair projects and boost esteem for competing and completing quality work in the annual science and technology fair, as well as ever day learning.
