Mrs. Lopez from Mecca CA is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

For the Love of Science!

Help me give my students the tools they need to continue their love for science. Without the microscope sets, the STEM kits in the Physical Science Labs, it is impossible for me to continue to foster this love!

My Students

My students are hard workers, dedicated and above all, they are eager to learn. This is a dual language classroom, where students are learning both languages at the same time. They are equally dedicated to both languages which makes them that much more special.Being a Title 1 School, my kids come from disadvantaged homes but instead of seeing this as a negative in their lives, they take this challenge and turn it into something positive. Creative, motivated and curious; my students show up each day with a smile on their faces and eager to learn. While some of my students dream of becoming teachers, professional soccer players or police officers, a great deal of them have already set their minds on becoming doctors, veterinarians, marine biologists and chemists. I know that with the right tools, this love for learning with continue to grow.

My Project

My students love science but after simple experiments in the classroom, it is impossible to get my students to see first hand the possibilities of using proper science tools. Having the proper STEM activities for my students besides the everyday home tools we use such as rubber bands, paper plates, string and sugar cubes would be much appreciated. My goal is to ignite the passion of science in a way that I make scientists out of them and plant the seed of sciences in their minds and their hearts. I would love to know that these students became doctors in the future. Who knows, I might have the doctor who discovers the cure for cancer, in my classroom.
