Mrs. Holcomb from Talkeetna AK is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students lab coats as uniforms for their Science Olympiad Competition.
My students attend a small rural elementary school. When students get to the intermediate grades they really enjoy participating in after school activities such as Science Olympiad.
My students choose to be part of Science Olympiad because they are curious, motivated, engaged learners who love hands-on science and engineering challenges.
Attending the district competition each year is always a highlight and my students would love to have lab coats as their team uniform. Lab coats are required for some events, so they would also be practical.
My plan is to have our new lab coats embroidered with our school logo. These lab coats will become our uniforms for the Science Olympiad Competition. I expect they will last and can be worn by students year after year. In addition, we would have the lab coats available when practicing the events after school. In this way, students will learn about the safety protocols in a science lab.
When my students put on lab coats, they seem to stand a little straighter, look a little more serious and tell me they feel like “real” scientists.
Lab coats as uniforms would not only be practical, since some events require them, but would also go a long way towards developing team spirit and pride.
