Mrs. Martin from West Jordan UT is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Build. Dream. Create. Physics Phun.

My students need a force motion lab kit and simple machines lab kit.

My Students

My students truly learn with their hands, not their ears. My classroom is filled with students who do not want to sit and learn from a lecture style presentation. Newton was not in a classroom when he discovered the laws that dominate the natural world, but in natures lab - outside.

When the brain connects with the hands and the eyes see - learning occurs in the classroom.

My students are full of energy and need hands on experiences in the laboratory setting. Learning the basics of newtons laws and applying them to simple machines will set the students up for a lifetime of building, creating, and dreaming.

My Project

The materials will take part in a three fold project. First we will use the force motion lab to build on the laws Newton set before us. We will follow with the simple machine lab to begin to use the information obtained in the classroom and previous lab, and build and create new simple machines. Once students have an understanding of simple machines, we will create and design individual simple machines by engineering the devices the minds create.

The students are eager for engagement and this project will help them see that they are individual masters of their own world.

What they dream, they can create. Opportunity is in the individual heart of every learner. The project will give them the confidence to succeed in every endeavor set before them once they see their own ability to create and build. Without your donation, the resources may not be available for students to see this and the dreams that were never dreamed, cant come true.
