Lab Equipment for Everyone
My students need easy and organized access to science lab equipment.
Teaching science is tough! In addition to getting to know your students and teaching science, you also have to organize, keep track of, and know how to operate all the science lab equipment.
My students range from ages 16-18.
All students at my school are required to take biology and chemistry as high school graduation requirements, and some students proceed to physics and physiology. The majority of my students are low income and qualify for free and reduced lunches. They attend a small public school with a focus on the arts and humanities; however, many of them still love learning science and are curious about the world.
My school opened up on the school site as a new school. As a result, I have not been able to unpack all the lab materials and learn how to operate some of the materials. This grant will pay for a specialist to come into my classroom and organize all the lab equipment. In addition, the specialist will provide me with ongoing training throughout the school year so I can better understand how to use my materials. This will help students tremendously because I will be able to demonstrate lab equipment at least twice a week and provide them with more hands on lab opportunities throughout the school year.
Your generous donations will impact my professional development as an educator, provide students access to high end lab equipment, and increase student opportunities for exciting hands-on learning.
