Mr. Dixon from Boston MA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a running start as we begin our Science Olympiad Team for Middle school and High School!
My students thrive when they feel they are cared for, and are challenged to go beyond what the outside world often thinks about them. Last year they received support from places like DonorsChoose.org, but they also did projects, sold Cookies, T-shirts they made, had car washes and the like, and even did videos to get to go on a 9th grade trip to NJ to see Rutgers and go to six flags. Many have had challenges and have risen above trauma to bring joy and life to the classroom.
Academically my students thrive when being challenged.
I taught my 9th grade the power rule (from Calculus) as an entry to Displacement Velocity and Acceleration. They picked it up in a couple of days and though some have had weak backgrounds, enjoyed the hands on projects we did, and many rose up to really enjoy and build their confidence in Physics and Math Last year.
This year I am teaching Engineering and Robotics. I am actually starting the first honors course the school has had in a while and looking forward to them rising up to the challenge.
I am an experienced Science Olympiad Coach that has taken another urban school to the Olympiad and won ribbons and metals and placed well for a very small school. I tried to get our team off the ground last year and made some progress, but this year we have a commitment to take 15-30 students to the Science Olympiad State Championships in March and we need foundational supplies that will help us compete effectively and focus on the Olympiad not trying to get supplies and the like in addition to getting off the ground. Your support can take this urban school to the State competition for the first time and get them excited about hands-on learning as well as expose them to rigorous STEM learning that will propel them into STEM fields.
Specifically we will be able to use real hands-on materials, like real rocks and minerals to shop properties needed for events as opposed to just looking on computers for characteristics, we will have materials to help launch bottle rockets as opposed to making a rocket and hoping it works at the competition.
Your support will help us really take off as opposed to just going to the Olympiad.
You donate directly to the teacher or project you care about and see where every dollar you give goes.
