Getting Smarter with Science Using Technology

My students need 3 Chromebooks to help them with learning science.

My Students

I work with middle school students at a Title I school, which means that about 90% of our students are eligible to receive free or reduced-price lunches due to their poor socioeconomic statuses. The school is located in an area in Miami called West Little River, where about 82% of family households are living below poverty.

The students and families at my school are hard-working that struggle financially and cannot afford to pay for many things, even school supplies.

Our school has dedicated teachers and students who work hard despite the families' and students' struggles and hardships. As a result of their hard work, the school's overall performance increased during last school year and became a "C" school.

My Project

My students have a desire to learn but are struggling with understanding scientific concepts, comprehending scientific text and vocabulary, and applying scientific knowledge to science labs. Because they need the extra help with gaining knowledge and application in science, they are using online programs which helps them build science vocabulary, give them strategies on how to understand the science texts and science labs. In addition, they are also using digital programs to do virtual science labs. My goal for my students is for them to become little scientists. The problem is that we do not have enough computers for everyone so it makes it difficult for all of the students to access the programs.

The students are very eager to use the science digital programs and would love to have more computers to access them.

I know that my students would be ecstatic if they got more computers to help them with their learning in science. This is something that they need especially that many of them do not have access to technology at home due to their financial situations. By helping them, it will not only help them with learning science but it will also build their knowledge to make them more successful as they move through high school, college, and career.
