Education In Aquatics!

My students need an aquarium to link all of the standards associated with life science.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students come from all walks of life, yet are all eager to learn. My goal is to make my class inviting, exciting and most importantly, educational. I find joy in seeing my students yearning for more information about science.

My students' educational advancement means the world to me and our community.

There are so many distractions students have now, and it is my duty to make them feel comfortable and ready to gain knowledge. I am thankful for the calling to education I have received, and I cannot wait to see them excel.

My Project

This aquarium will link all standards associated with life science. Students will be able to be heavily involved with caring for and observing the life cycle of the marine life in the aquarium.

With this aquarium, will be able to see first hand the importance of the cleanliness and nourishment of marine life in right in the comfort of their classroom.

The digital camera will allow them to capture the evolution of life and display it to others. This will give my students the opportunity to also learn responsibility and how every part of life is important to us as a whole.
