Keep Cool and Heat Up After Hurricane Maria!

My students need a mini refrigerator and microwave oven in order to assist them with their science projects.

My Students

Many of my students come from low socio-economic families and are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. After Irma, things became even more challenging. If I can in any way provide them with most the things they need to succeed it will help them achieve.

Despite all the hardship that students encounter daily, they aim to succeed in school and in life.

My students are the bottom 25% academically but I strive to help them achieve and succeed.

My Project

After Hurricane Irma and Maria, many of our students were without power for lengthy periods of time and suffered damage to their homes. When school was back in session, for many of them, school became their safe haven. Along with this, we are starting to see an increase of students to our area that evacuated Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria devastated their homes.

I am getting an increase of students that do not speak English and have learning disabilities and I would like to get interesting STEAM materials to help these students learn science without needing to speak English.

Intergrating food nutrition with science will help my students learn by seeing and doing. Having the mini refrigerator will help us keep our food products cold, and the microwave will help us cook it up.

Hands-on science experiments open up a whole new world for my students. I can not wait to see my students faces when they can cook up a "storm" and learn through the wonderful world of Science!
