My Students

For some 3rd graders the move to 3rd is a big step up from 2nd grade and having hands on science materials really help. These 22 students love to learn and are amazing young people! They always love to participate in hands on projects and work together and then share their ideas with each other and with me. They are so special and deserve to have anything that will help them be successful. My class of students will be able to learn in a more structured place. Please help these wonderful students and donate.

My Project

My kids love science! Every Friday we do all day science and right now they are each creating their own science fair projects - the problem is materials. These science kits will provide some of the items they need along with helping them look at themselves as scientists in the future.

These kits will not only provide hands on science experiments but these students will be able to look at 20 STEM careers and prepare for 4th grade where they will work with the CTE (career technical education) classes at our local high school.

This sets them up for a positive after school career path and a better chance at finding the right job for them.
