Enhancing Global Science in the South Bronx

The cost of equipment for study of the environment--inclduing a soil auger, a clinometer, and a temperature logger--from Nasco and Carolina Biological Supply Co. is $507, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

+-I am a resource-room teacher in the Bronx. I teach learning-disabled children in grades six to eight. Our school is a Title I school with 93 percent of the students receiving free lunch. We are a very poor school with little or no funding available to enhance the learning experience beyond basic education. Recently, I was given the opportunity to receive training in the G.L.O.B.E. (www.globe.gov) science program. As a certified GLOBE teacher, I am qualified to guide my students in taking environmental measurements, report data to the GLOBE database, and use GLOBE mapping and graphing utilities to visualize data. These activities are pursued in the interest of achieving the objectives of the GLOBE program--to enhance environmental awareness throughout the world, to contribute to scientific understanding of the Earth, and to improve standards in science and mathematics education. GLOBE supplied us with some basic scientific equipment to get us started investigating the environment around our school. However, this equipment is minimal in nature and does not allow us to investigate all of the GLOBE aspects (protocols) necessary to understand environmental science fully (soil sampling, hydrology, land cover mapping, etc.). We are in need of a bucket auger, clinometer (for measuring soil slope and tree height as well as other height, slope, and vertical angle measurements), HOBO temperature/relative humidity logger and probe, and Boxcar Pro 4 software (necessary to collect the data from the HOBO logger.) With this equipment, my students will be afforded the opportunity to understand environmental issues that affect not only them and their neighborhood but the world as a whole.
