Mrs. McMillan from Vancleave MS is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Science makes us all wonder. Through scientific investigations students can take their wondering minds and formulate conclusions.

Students in this district are from mid-low socioeconomic backgrounds.

Like every other child, these students love to investigate the world of science. Their inquisitive minds have the need for learning new experiences, but unfortunately funds are limited to classroom teachers.

My Project

By obtaining these science kits about volcanoes, simple machines and the human body, students will be allowed to investigate the science world. Science provides many unanswered questions to students. By challenging students through kinetic experiences, students will be able to explore science in a new way. Critical thinking skills, research skills, and creative thinking skills are among some of the skills students will be able to master.

These experiences will empower students with the knowledge and skills to create their own futures; therefore becoming contributors to a diverse and changing world.

These scientific investigations will take the wonder and change it to answers for these students.
