Mrs. I. from Orangeburg SC is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Lab: Comparing Mass And Volume of Substances

My students need 4 triple beam balances for lab experiments in physics.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach physics to 12th grade high school students. My students are minority African Americans.

Our school does not have enough money to provide us with necessary materials that will help students relate to the natural world.

We need the beam balances to measure mass of substances. Helping us get these materials will help my students make connection between concept and everyday experience and it will also help them make learning an interesting experience. Thank you.

We have done very few lab: experiments in physics that require us to measure mass of substances because we do not have enough beam balances. I bought one electronic balance that all my students use during experiment but they don't get to do much since everyone has to wait to get a turn. Helping us get these materials will help my students make connection between concept and everyday experience and it will also help make learning an interesting experience. Thank you.
