My Students

Grossed out? Fascinated? Well you should be! It's how your body works! It's how the world works! It powers everything around us! It's Science! There's never a dull moment and it's always cool to be a scientist!

The entire school population is about 300 and we were excited to welcome roughly 60 incoming freshman this school year!

We are an AVID school and are career/college focused. The students are very much into technology and mainstream culture, but also relate to examples based from their rural communities and backgrounds.

My Project

My students need basic household supplies for science labs. I am asking for Ziploc Sandwich Bags, Plastic Cups, Plastic Tea Spoons, and Laboratory Distribution Trays. I plan to use these supplies for various labs that allow my students to have hands-on experience with measuring, looking at chemical reactions and studying the concepts covered in class. By having these requested materials, I will ensure that there are enough materials for all students to participate in labs.

Having these lab supplies would increase student engagement.

By having these supplies in the classroom my students will be able to visualize concepts covered in class and have a better understanding of those key concepts.
