My students need a wind tunnel, a fan and silk scarfs to learn the "cool" science behind what makes objects move.

My Students

Our students are very special to us. We have a very unique and diverse classroom where our students stay with us for two years. Everyone fits into this classroom community. Our multi-age program lets kids grow responsibly and take on leadership roles. It is so wonderful to see children bloom and grow as the year progresses. Our program has a diverse range of abilities from gifted to special education. Each child will grow and learn at their own level.

Our school is 100% Title I funded.

My students receive free breakfast and lunch. Due to a current lack of funding, many of the supplies the students have been using are from my own purchases. I would like for my students to have access to supplies that provide opportunities for academic success.

My Project

Have you ever wondered about the wind? While my students are learning about "cool" information about how the wind is able to move objects. Students would love to see this cool science in action and the opportunity to have a machine that students can utilize during self discovery would be a wonderful addition to our learning.

The wind tunnel would provide students with the tools to learn about the amazing force of weather and how powerful wind can be.

We also need silk scarfs to test and experiment with inside the wind tunnel, as well as a fan and replacement fan to generate wind inside the tunnel. We also are in need of a smaller scale wind tunnel machine to help students understand and play with wind.

My students would love to have a machine that would give them a firsthand experience of how wind works to move objects in nature and learn in a fun and engaging way. Thank you for your consideration to bring these cool tools to our students!
