My Students

My students are a diverse group of bright young scholars from all over the NYC area, most of whom are first- and second-generation Americans, attending a competitive Title I school in Brooklyn, NY. Our school uses the International Baccalaureate's diploma program as a way to develop students' abilities across disciplines at a very high level and foster well-rounded individuals. We are an "IB For All" school which means that we fully cover the cost of the IB program - usually only available to private school students or a select group in public schools - so that all our students can achieve college readiness. My students often balance rigorous academics with a lot of responsibilities at home supporting their families all while maintaining a positive attitude and desire to learn.

My Project

My students are all in the extremely challenging International Baccalaureate program which requires them to complete over ten required labs per science plus a senior lab project called the internal assessment. The internal assessment is a semester long project where students design and conduct a lab project all on their own. It inspires them and fosters both analytical and creative skills.

When you have a classroom full of 34 students doing 34 different labs at once, it is a huge financial burden to buy enough supplies for everyone!

Often I have 3-4 students sharing one digital scale, slowing down their work and causing error in data collection. These scales will in no way satisfy the full need but will go a long way to ensure that students can more seamlessly conduct their lab reports.

I always appreciate the help from you all! Please consider a small donation to help my students develop their STEM skills and experience hands-on learning in a true lab environment.
