Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students learn best from hands on activities. But they must wear school uniforms and I don't want them to get messy while in the lab. Lab aprons would preserve their clothing, which is important because families often only can afford one uniform for their student.
7th grade students study environmental science. They will do an activity where they test water ph levels and use ordinary household products to try to normalize the ph level in an "acid rain" filled lake. This is messy; so lab aprons would allow students to participate easier. We also make pollution catchers were students make their own "pollution catcher" to hang somewhere outside or inside to see how much pollution is in the environment. This includes petroleum jelly and string; so again, quite messy. I have three sinks to clean their hands; but no aprons to protect clothing. Finally, these same students will do a lab extracting DNA from onion cells; another potentially messy lab... but fascinating in this time of so many forensic science shows.
