Ms. Li from Miami FL is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learning Science Through Technology!

My Students

The science that we teach many students still today is that of ancient scientists. There is so much current event science that is more interesting and relevant to our kids that can be found through current day technology, such as tablets.

My students are 8th graders that have mostly grown up in Miami, FL.

We are a Title I school with the majority of students currently living at an economical disadvantage. My students face many unimaginable challenges in and out of school. Despite that, they continue to show up to school and meet the highest expectations.

My Project

My students will use these tablets to access Gizmos and virtual labs with material that they would not otherwise be exposed to. With Gizmos, they can manipulate ecosystems at the touch of a button, and they can experiment with subjects, chemicals, and equipment that they do not have access to. They will also be able to use the tablets to research current and relevant topics in science to enhance engagement and learning.

With these tablets, students will have access to a wealth of information and resources at their fingertips that they may not otherwise have.

My students will be better prepared for the technologically advanced world around them.

Grades 6-8
