Mr. Boggs from Sellersburg IN is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Glassware Needed Because, Well, Glass Breaks

Help me give my students 18 heavy duty Pyrex beakers to use in the lab.

My Students

My students come from a rural to suburban area of southern Indiana. They have varying backgrounds and abilities that I will work with throughout the year. Their varying backgrounds allow for a unique perspective to be presented to their peers.

Unfortunately, my students are in a school that is in need of repair and where equipment has not been updated.

I am slowly but surely updating the physics equipment from donors like you so that the students can have a first-rate lab experience in my class.

My Project

When you think of a chemistry lab, the idea of beakers probably comes to mind. You imagine lots of little glass jars filled with different chemicals. These are essential to any lab, especially a school lab.

Unfortunately, glass breaks, and over the years we have lost several beakers to accidents.

It is now time to replace them. These are heavy duty beakers and will, hopefully, last longer than our previous ones.

We use these to boil water, mix chemicals, or just to hold items used in the lab. I want my students to spend at much time in the lab as possible. This is one of those essential items that is needed just to get them there and will be used year after year.
