Ms. Le from Los Angeles CA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Bridging the Gap Between Science and Technology

My students need a classroom laptop to analyze and collect data.

My Students

The majority of my students have limited skills in technology, let alone in creating data sheets. I want to incorporate the use of Excel to collect and analyze lab data to better prepare my students in the use of technology.

My students are low income students in a small urban school.

The majority of students do not own home computers and have limited access to technology at school. Although some students have access to smart phone technology, most of them do not have intermediate word processing or basic data analysis skills.

My Project

My students will use the laptop to collect and analyze class data on labs. We have access to Lab Pro software and district licensing of Microsoft Office; however, we do not have enough classroom computers to run the programs. The laptop will also be useful for me to demonstrate to students (with the class projector) how to use the different software before they perform their experiments.

Your donation will support students to access technology and develop skills in creating spreadsheets and analyzing data.

Microsoft Excel is an extremely useful tool in organizing and analyzing data, and students will make the important connection between how technology can aid the learning of science.
