Mrs. Stefanik from Hazleton PA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Future Scientist

My students need 9 different Science materials in order to foster a hands-on learning environment.

  • $372 goal

This project expired on August 1, 2011.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Super Science! Help my students by providing tactile materials. "Twelve, 11, 10, 9, ignition sequence start. Six, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, zero, all engines running. Liftoff! We have a liftoff, 32 minutes past the hour. Liftoff on Apollo 11." - Jack King at NASA headquarters

My students are inquisitive by nature, love to discover and explore, and are interested in science.

In order to help a student maximum their potential in the science field, I need to provide hands-on materials. I want to encourage curiosity, promote discovery, and meet state standards for our science curriculum.

My Project

DISCOVERY! EXPLORATION! FUTURE! I might have the future world saving scientist in my classroom. Please help me to encourage my students to explore, discover, and envision the future by helping me provide them with hands-on manipulatives that allow them to maximize their potential.

This project can help shape the future of a number of students.

Hands-on materials allow the students to touch, see, and feel things that they might not necessarily be able to in their home environment. Science is an important part of education that is underfunded, but crucial!
