My Students

My elementary school is busy! About 700 k-5 students rotate through my class each week. They come from a widely diverse community but yet, they are very open and accepting of each other.

Classroom competitions and challenges using projects they designed is my students' favorite activity.

My students also enjoy hands-on experiments and collaborating with each other through team building activities.

It is a pleasure to work with these young minds each day, with all of us learning from each other.

My Project

The fun-filled Sanp Circuits Jr. kits I'm requesting will enable students to learn the fundamentals behind circuitry and the basic properties of electricity with a hands-on approach.

These snap together circuits will surely spark my students interest in electricity and how this transfers to the electronic devices we use every day.

By using the colorful pictures inside each kit, the students are guided through a safe and simple circuit getting a general sense of electrical movement.

By donating to our project you will enable my students a hands-on learning opportunity and the excitement that comes with learning something new.
