My Students

My students are very eager to learn about science! They love to learn about the scientific method and to be scientists for the day. They will be participating in science activities throughout the semester that will require safety equipment to be worn.

These kids are young scientists at heart.

They would love to be able to look and feel like scientists while doing labs and activities in the classroom.

My students value being safe in the classroom and in the lab.

My Project

My students love to experiment. With the items that I am requesting they will be safer when performing classroom experiments and they will feel more like real scientists.

The students in any science classroom need to know that their safety is the number one concern.

With proper equipment, lab coats, gloves, and safety glasses, all of my students will feel safer when conducting science experiments in class.

It is also important that students be able to take on the role of scientist when performing classroom labs. With the correct protection, they will be able to really believe that they are actual scientists.
