My Students

My students are eager to learn and try new things. They are inquisitive, and they love asking questions. My students love completing experiments and dissections. My students are fully engaged during the dissections and experiments, and they are always asking for new specimens to dissect and new experiments to complete. Many of the students have asked to complete more dissections in the future. The majority of my students come from low-income families, but that doesn't hold them back from coming to school every day eager to learn and try new things.

My Project

The dissection trays will make it easier for my students during dissection lessons. Right now, my students are using foam plates and not able to pin down the specimens correctly. This makes it more difficult to examine and identify the specimens internal organs. I have purchased the other supplies (scissors, gloves, probes, etc.) with my personal funds.

These dissection trays will help the students be able to complete dissections more efficiently.

We typically dissect frogs and perch. I would also like to dissect cow eyes and hearts to go along with our study of human eyes and hearts. The dissection trays will make the whole process more user-friendly for the students.
