My Students

Our society needs more STEM graduates and especially STEM graduates that look like my students! We are a traditional high school in an urban district, and the school has recently left turn-around status. Our students are about 90% minority, and over 80% qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. In addition, over 42% of them are classified as English Language Learners. My students need to first see themselves as science masters so that they choose a career in STEM in order to be leaders in their communities!

My Project

These lab safety goggles will help students protect their eyes in the science classroom! This project will benefit all students at North High school in biology, chemistry and physics classrooms! As a publicly funded high school, we are at a loss for new and innovative materials. Thus, your help will help us to replenish the broken and damaged safety goggles from years past. Every student deserves the opportunity to be able to engage in hands-on learning and here at North we strive to make this part of every science lesson at all levels. Some of these learning opportunities though can't be done without the proper lab safety equipment!
