My Students

Bug hops by...What kids is it? What does it look like? why can't I see it better?

My students are 20 creative and sweet first graders in the lowcountry are of South Carolina.

They are intelligent and want to learn. Many of them come from poor homes and do not have basic needs always met. They are fun to teach and can truly comprehend above their years.

My Project

Our school has become a STEM school and I want to set up a lab area for my students to study science up close. They will be able to take videos and look at plans or insects under microscopes. They will learn about the Earth around them and how they can make changes to the world.

Please help me make this STEM dream possible and donate to this lab crazy project.

I know that we as a group can educate the future generation on the importance of protecting the Earth.
