Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our school would benefit from science equipment and books. My students would love to use a microscope. They would benefit from looking at real minerals. The students would benefit from seeing the real thing instead of pictures.

My students are curious about the world around them.

They love to look at nature and see the world. Our school is a diverse bunch of students on a military base. So we have students coming and going from everywhere in the world. So looking at things in the world would help students learn about our school and where we are in the world.

My Project

The students will use the books to read about science things. The students will use the microscope to see the minerals. Students love looking at things up close, so using the microscope will greatly influence their knowledge in the world of science.

Student's would really benefit from getting science equipment and books by looking at the real thing instead of pictures.

A microscope would improve our classroom by letting the students look at things up close.
