Help Us Get Our Hands On Some Hands-On Science!

My students need science materials they can really connect with! This hands-on science kit includes all the resources we need to complete a study of pollution.

My Students

"Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known." As Carl Sagan says, there is a wealth of knowledge to be found, and what better way to find it than through experimentation and exploration! Help my students learn and experience the incredible through hands-on science!

Nearly every child in my 5th grade class of 27 students will be on free lunch this coming year, and the school itself is in the heart of a very low income community.

The students come to class hopeful and excited about learning new things and especially about studying science! However, a textbook can rarely captivate like an experience can. We so rarely get to experience science in a meaningful hands-on way it is a huge treat for the kids when we can make that happen! It is amazing to see the excitement in their faces when they get to 'do real science' and apply their skills and knowledge.

My Project

Our current science program has very few resources for hands-on activities. I am hoping that, with your support, I can begin collecting several science kits for students to use along with our current textbook curriculum. With a collection of hands on inquiry based kits students will have the chance to use the scientific method to experiment, and practice their critical thinking skills in real life meaningful ways. These kinds of skills will take them far in life, and help prepare them for and inspire them to pursue higher education.

Your help will make an immense impact on these students' lives.

With such intense focus on math and literacy in preparation for standardized testing, it's important to make time for science in the classroom. Science is one of the best ways to give kids analytical skills that they so desperately need to be successful! Your support will help develop future policy makers and leaders with the ability to think, reason, and problem solve!
