Mrs. Freeman from Atlanta GA is requesting supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Grow Baby Grow! Growing Bacteria in Science Lab!

My students need enough pre-made agar plates, sterile cotton swabs, disposable gloves, and sanitizing wipes in order to carry out a "Growing Bacteria" investigation.

Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

My students are wonderful. But I guess all teachers say that right? I have the pleasure of teaching 85 7th graders at an inner-city KIPP charter school in Atlanta, GA. My student population is 99% African American and 77% free or reduced price lunch.

My students are not only exceptional, they are the next generation of scientists, doctors, and engineers and they deserve everything I can provide for their excellent life science education.

They are thinkers, explorers, investigators, and above all scientists! They range in age between 11 and 13, but of course, they want to know everything about the world. They attend a school that is preparing them to go to and through college by spending a whopping 10 hours at school daily, plus 2 hours of homework nightly. They are dynamic, challenging, bright, and humorous young people whose hard work has made our school the number one school in our district and a Georgia School of Excellence.

My Project

My students will become real scientists as they put on lab aprons, disposable gloves, goggles, and set out to find the dirtiest place in the school by collecting and growing bacteria in agar. They will spend several days creating and shaping their own investigation of where they might find the most bacteria in the school. During this time students will learn about bacteria and it's characteristics as one of the 6 major kingdoms of living things while documenting their bacterial growth in their science journals.

The road to creating future doctors, research scientists, engineers, and veterinarians may be a long and challenging one, but I firmly believe that the more exposure I can give my students, the more likely they are to develop not only a love and passion for the sciences but also a desire to pursue a science career.

Your generosity can help make a major experience possible for my students and therefore help them along their journey to be the next generation of great scientists.
