Mrs. Barnes from Mount Vernon TX is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Cooking in Science Class

My students need new tools so that they can complete labs that involve food activities. WE need beakers, stir rods and more.

My Students

My science classroom is a place of challenge and discovery. Students spend this year laying the foundation for many science concepts. They are full of knowledge and curiosity.

All of the students that I teach receive free breakfast.

My students are intelligent. They love to work on projects to prove their knowledge on a particular topic. They think outside of the box and express a desire to learn more. However, many do not have the resources to do just that.

My Project

The materials I am requesting will be used for numerous lab activities. This year, my students will be making butter, looking at the physical change that popcorn undergoes, making ice cream, and testing variables while constructing gummy worms.

Help me provide students with that extra layer of understanding.

Lab activities that involve food require 'food only' beakers and graduated cylinders. You can help me get these materials through the door. Students are already provided with hands-on activities, but this will provide an extra layer of understanding as they will be completing edible projects. This will be something they remember forever.
