Don't Blind Me With Science!

My students need safety goggles for the participants and presenters for our evening of science so that we can demonstrate science safety while showcasing and educating about scientific phenomena.

My Students

The students I serve are much more than the stigma of a school district that is nestled in, what was only a few years back, recognized as the poorest small city in the country. Many are from bilingual, low-income families, some of whom have recently relocated to the United States. Although I serve a financially disadvantaged community, with 97% of our school's population living in poverty, it saddens me that my students are provided with resources that pale in comparison to more affluent neighboring school districts.

Similar to any individual in their age group, my students are inherently curious and creative individuals, who each have a unique perspective on the way the world works.

An important part of my time with my students is helping them to realize how wonderful their perspectives are, and offering each of them opportunities to shine!

My Project

My students will be hosting an evening of science toward the end of the school year as well as taking our "show" on the road to the neighborhood elementary schools in an effort to practice our "act".

In an effort to demonstrate proper science safety, not to mention keep our participants as well as our presenters safe, we will need proper eye protection.

The goggles and disinfectant wipes found in this project will not only serve for the evening of science, but also be used in our classroom long after the evening has passed! Thank you for your support of our celebration of my students and their families, as well as for the safety of all involved, as we immerse ourselves in scientific phenomena!
