Mr. Chambers from Arcadia IN is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Chemistry Comes to Life

My students need a class set of crucibles, beakers, flasks, support rods with bases, gas burners, and rubber tubing so they can see chemical reactions happening and use their observations to make predictions and perform calculations.

I teach Chemistry to sophomores and juniors at a small rural high school in Indiana.

I typically want students to do 1 to 2 laboratory experiment for every unit I teach. Due to a shortage in funding, I have not been able to replace the glassware that gets broken and replace worn out equipment. Lab equipment gets old, corroded and rusty. I have some lab equipment that has been here longer than the 20 years that I've been teaching here.

I need to replace basic glassware and lab equipment so my students can continue to experience chemistry for themselves and not just read about it in a book.

Your help will ensure that my 84 Chemistry 1 students as well as my 48 Advanced Placement Chemistry students can continue to bring Chemistry to life by actually doing Chemistry for themselves.
