My students often ask me, "When am I ever going to use science in my life?" I tell them it is not the just the content that is important, but it is the way science requires you to approach problems that is truly valuable.
My students want tangible learning experiences that have real-world applications.
Students at my school have limited resources to engage in truly immersive learning in the science concepts that interest them. This is compounded by the fact that often times, even the essential supplies needed are not available.
Let's just say that my classroom has become a bit of a jungle. In my classroom space is limited and extra shelving is always welcome. These steel shelves on coasters will make storing equipment more convenient and mobile. It can also help us to use space more efficiently if we did not have to rely on window space for growing our plants.
We need a more organized way to store our equipment and grow our seedlings, and in general we just need more room.
We also need more light for growing our plants. These grow lights are well suited for a growing station in my classroom and can easily be joined together to make for a very convenient and versatile lighting situation.
