My students need a hot plate so we can safely heat up liquids to study matter and other science.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Do you remember the fun that you had in science? My earliest memory involves heating liquids to their boiling points. I am trying to teach a unit on matter, and I would like to use a hot plate for my students to observe what happens to a liquid when it is heated.
We are a fifth grade class in Nevada.
My students are very eager learners who get excited about things that many of us take for granted. They do not have many life experiences outside of their neighborhood. They are great kids with big dreams for the future. Our school is in a high poverty area with the majority of the students receiving free and reduced lunch.
The students will be eager to use the new hot plate so they can safely heat up materials to see the effect heat has on them. Students will be able to clearly see the differences between the three states of matter, and within the three states as well. We will be able to simulate how the desert heat affects vegetation, and why many plants are unable to grow here. This product will allow the students to be able to safely conduct these experiments. These ideas may lead to other questions that the kids will want to test.
Your donation will help enrich the lives of these students.
It will help open opportunities for the students to explore scientific questions. Hopefully by answering these questions, the students will generate more questions to test and explore. Thank you.
