Mrs. Beard from Sparta NC is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Go Go Physics

My students need 4 Vernier links to be able to connect probeware to their calculators and then to the computer.

  • $356 goal

This project expired on August 8, 2011.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Help us connect to the world of technology! Help us transfer data from one source to another.

I am the upper level science teacher in a small, rural high school in the mountains of North Carolina.

I teach Chemistry and Physics and am trying to do more labs using technology. The problem is that if we have some, it may or may not work so I am trying to update equipment on a almost non-existent budget.

My Project

We have some probes within the department, but no way to connect them to either the student's calculators or the computer to help graph the collected data. These go links will help us not only to be more mobile with the probes and collect data "in the field", but then to transfer data, hopefully to a computer.

Technology needs to be implemented now in the classroom to make our students more competitive and prepared for college and jobs.

These go links help us use what technology that we have access to. Any help is appreciated.
