Dr. Johnson from Jackson MS is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Cell Size and You

Help me give my students the experience of completing lab activities. The goal is for my students to gain hands-on experience and to understand the concepts used in AP Biology.

My Students

For my entire teaching career, I have always worked with urban, high-risk school children. Many of my students look to us for guidance and to help make life choices. My goal is to expose them to as much as possible to help them make good decisions.

My kids are a positive, motivated and dynamic group.

They have a great desire to know new things, participate in enriching activities, and have realized they have the ability to do whatever they desire.

My Project

I would like to purchase lab kits for my students so they can have exposure to lab practices and hands-on activities. Because we are an urban district in a poor state, many students don't have the chance to experience many hands-on activities.

Lab materials are expensive but necessary for students who are enrolled in AP Biology.

This gives them the opportunity to gain a full educational experience while they are enrolled in the course and hopefully foster a love for the process and study of science. My personal goal is to give them the opportunity to experience as much as they possibly can.
