Ms. Di Pieri from Huntington Park CA is requesting Other through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Chemical Reactions Project

My students need lab supplies, including an oven, and intervention materials, including a dry erase board and easel, to complete the next semester of their chemistry class.

  • $1,190 goal

This project expired on June 22, 2012.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

"Science is everywhere." This is what I want my students to take from my chemistry class. I want them to see how relevant chemistry is to their daily lives.

My students are creative and talented, and they love to do hands-on activities.

They excel at activities that enable them to see everyday applications of science. They attend a small pilot school that has a very low enrollment, which means our resources are very limited.

My Project

I am requesting large-scale materials that will help them to successfully get through the next unit of their chemistry class. I am requesting an oven and lab demonstration kits so they can see and experience chemical reactions and thermodynamics. I am also requesting a whiteboard with easel so I can review chemistry concepts with smaller groups of students in my intervention class.

Since we are a pilot school, the district does not provide us with monetary resources as opposed to those of other schools.

As a school community, we need to look elsewhere for monetary resources. So please help me make a difference in the lives of my students by helping me buy supplies for my class that will create everlasting impressions of the relevance of chemistry!
