Mrs. Wheeler from Myrtle Beach SC is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Back to Science Basics!

My students need various items of science equipment such as a triple beam balance, graduated cylinders, a globe, and laser pointers. They will enrich the lab experience.

My Students

A science classroom can be one of the most exciting places in a school. Providing students with hands-on learning opportunities makes the curriculum interesting and more attainable.

We are a charter school and don't have as much funding as a normal public school might have.

Our students are bright, innovative, and have the desire to succeed. They are involved not only in their classes, but also in extracurricular activities. They really enjoy doing labs, projects, and anything hands-on!

My Project

My students need a variety of lab supplies to supplement their science curriculum. A triple beam balance will help the students to learn about mass. The globe shows students a different view of their world. The laser pointers are utilized in several light and wave activities. The graduated cylinders are important in the study of volume, and the buzzer is a great way to learn about sound waves!

These donations make a difference because students need to learn visually and hands-on.

Each item can be used in a variety of experiments. Performing these activities and demonstrations will help the students to better grasp the subject matter, and will make science more exciting!
