Ecstatic About Science

My students need tickets and transportation to the Science Museum Oklahoma in our home city to inspire their inner inventors, makers, and scientists.

My Students

My students are amazing kids that have a great desire and potential to learn new things! They are excited to learn high school mathematics and science to expand their capacity for critical thinking. They take pride in their efforts and are willing to challenge their minds for the sake of learning.

My twelfth grade is comprised of 25 amazing students, most of whom come from bilingual households and receive free lunch.

Our high school provides rigorous academics, fantastic teachers, and a safe learning environment. Our goal is to prepare our students for success in college and to instill the ideas to become great citizens of our great country.

With everything going on in the world, I would like to prove to my students that there still remain a lot of great people who care and wish to help others (even strangers) make their dreams come true.

My Project

My senior students will be given the opportunity to visit the Science Museum Oklahoma, to see the Kirkpatrick Planetarium Show and Science Live Show. The majority of my students have never visited any museum, so it will be an exciting experience for them!

The experience of learning different mathematic and science concepts is very different from the other forms of learning offered to the students in our schools.

I believe it is important to open their minds to the depth of interaction they can have through Mathematics and Science in a society where poverty holds children back from achieving their full creative potential.

I hope you can help me make this possible for my students. Thank you so much!
