My students need 4 new supply carts for chemistry class.
Imagine selecting a shopping cart with the wheel that spins wildly or doesn't spin at all. Terrible, right? Our current chemistry carts are rickety, poorly constructed and likely to collapse. These old carts pose a real danger to bystanders and are in dire need of replacing!
My school has a 47% free or reduced lunch rate and a high percentage of homelessness.
There are over 70 different languages spoken at our high school alone. Many of my students are English language learners, war refugees, migrant workers, and come from multi-generational poverty. Despite all this, there is a palpable, insatiable appetite for science. I emphasize a practical, hands-on curriculum that is relevant to the modern world that students are living in.
I am requesting two plastic dual-level carts and two metal carts that are wider for students to access supplies during our labs. When I need to set up labs, I do so in the chemical storeroom. The glassware and chemicals are then wheeled to the classroom on rickety, old and rusty carts so students can access the supplies. These four new carts will help my chemistry classes have multiple labs set up at once, without the fear of tetanus or dismemberment.
Please help free my students from the danger of malfunctioning, rusty equipment!
These carts will help bring our department into the 21st century, and make chemistry as safe as it is fun.
