Curious Chem Students Supplies - 7th Grader Seeing Cells

My students need chemical supplies for more hands-on labs, lab kits to visually see concepts and microscope slides to investigate cells.

My Students

"Be the change" is a quote I have displayed in the front of my classroom all formed from element abbreviations and scientific symbols. My students are invested each day to study the subject of science and recognize its importance to positively affect their lives and change the lives of others.

My students are an enthusiastic and curious bunch of girls who are eager to learn and understand science.

Going to an all-girls school has given them the chance to indulge in scientific inquiry without the fear of gender stereotypes and they never hesitate to ask questions. They do best with any hands-on learning experiences and always want to know why a specific phenomenon exists or how scientists made a certain discovery. My students are from low income neighborhoods in inner city New York. They are independent thinkers and work very hard to master the material because they are invested in succeeding for their future. They often ask questions about college and I want to ensure they are prepared for future science coursework at a rigorous level.

My Project

My students love to see what they are learning and that means they deserve as many opportunities to participate in lab work as possible. Thus far, we have been using plastic cups in most of our lab work, something they will not be using in any future studies. My students deserve to use beakers and instruments that accurately measure volumes for their lab experiences. In addition, without a previous stock of chemical supplies, these lab kits will allow students to explore specific concepts that are hard to visualize with just simple instruction such as Le Chatelier's Principle. Finally, we have a couple of microscopes, but no slides to accompany them. My students are so excited for our cells unit and I want them to be able to experience using a microscope to make new discoveries.

My students are hopeful.

They believe that the hard work they are putting in now will lead them on a life they will be proud of. I want them to be prepared to successfully complete any science coursework in their future and use those studies to change the world.
