Help Make Our Science Class Cool

My students need an indoor air cooler to transform our hot, windowless science lab into a cool and clean environment that supports concentration and higher-level thinking.

My Students

Seeing students excited about science has been the greatest gift since joining DonorsChoose. Our district has faced a lot of financial hardship in recent years and your donations make hands-on learning and inclusion a reality in my classroom!

We are a rural, low-income school district surrounded by farmland, which many students live and work on.

Many of my students are tactile or kinesthetic learners who enjoy being able to get out of their desks, move around, work with their hands, experiment, and create things. I also have a unique group of learners with special needs who often require modified instruction to achieve success in our science class.

My Project

Every day I arrive early to set up lessons and labs to get my students excited to learn science. When I first open the door I'm quickly greeted by a rush of hot air trapped from the day prior. My interior classroom lacks windows so the day begins at temperatures ranging between 75 and 80 degrees. As students arrive and we start working, the temperature continues to rise; by the end of the day it is sweltering and not much learning is happening. Fans just blow hot, sticky humid air around and don't really cool off the room. The heat can also trigger a host of other problems, including asthma and allergies, increased absenteeism, and reduced academic performance.

The Environmental Protection Agency has published, "there is evidence that modest changes in room temperature affect student's abilities to perform on tasks requiring mental concentration." Overall, cooler temperatures and modest relative humidity conditions have been noted to have the most positive impact.

According to the National Bureau of Economic Research, there is evidence that “cumulative heat exposure inhibits cognitive skill development and that school air conditioning can mitigate this effect.” This indoor evaporative air cooler will significantly improve our classroom air quality and help my students to stay focused, healthy, motivated, and optimistic in achieving their academic goals.
