Help me give my students two Chromebooks to use for researching and typing their science fair papers, as well as for coding and creating projects for our Science class.

My students love science!
They love the hands-on experiments, projects, and dissection labs. My favorite part of teaching is seeing their eyes light up when they make a discovery during a lab.
I teach 7th and 8th grade science in a middle school in Missouri. My students are both energetic and inquisitive learners. They enjoy coming to school, researching new science concepts, and conducting hands-on experiments.
My classroom has some computers, but not enough for everyone. We use our computers every day, for researching, writing, blogging, creating websites and presentations, web quests, and we've even learned a little about coding. Students must share computers, which works in some situations but does not work very well when researching and writing individual reports or projects. My students are also very interested in learning how to code. We've learned some of the basics of coding, but I would love to start an after-school club to teach deeper coding skills and allow my students to begin creating their own coding projects. Right now, the students who were lucky enough to get a computer can work on projects, while the other students wait for a computer to open up. Your donation of two Chromebooks will allow more of my students to work on the computers every day. It would also help me to have enough technology in my classroom to start an after-school coding club. Eventually, I would like to have a computer for every student to use. We also use the Chromebooks every day in Science class for researching, creating presentations, and for creating our Science Fair projects.
Students will be able to use our Chromebooks for research projects, web quests, updating their website and classroom blogs, presentations, and for practicing coding.
My students will not be hindered from a lack of technology in our classroom.
