Laptops for the Laboratory
My students need Laptops and a mobile charging station for laboratory work. In addition, we plan on doing air pollution testing and need ozone detecting materials.
Do you remember getting your first laptop? Do you recall having to go to the library and waiting for a desktop computer that actually works well?
Our high school is in urban Los Angeles and draws from poverty stricken neighborhoods.
Most students are in overcrowded classrooms and on federally subsidized lunch programs. Our resources are scarce and most of the science equipment is either broken or outdated.
Students will be able able to access and experience current technology in the classroom with the help of 7 Toshiba laptop computers. With a laptop for each science lab station, they will research current topics in science, present PowerPoint presentations and have a greater variety of lessons based on the Internet. In addition, the chargeable laptop station will allow us to keep the batteries fully charged and allow us to store them overnight in the stockroom. Lastly, the 8 graduated cylinder sets and air pollution testing supplies will allow us to perform laboratory tests critical to implementing the curriculum.
Students will be excited to access current information on a variety of topics.
Their motivation for learning will increase and it will become more interactive and dynamic. Class projects will change into creative endeavors. Also, the lab equipment will allow students to measure air pollution among other laboratory activities.
