Mr. Kirchner from Accident MD is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Lights on Technology

My students need a replacement bulb for the LCD projector so that I can project the written notes and internet technology for all to see.

I teach electronics and digital electronics in a rural community high school that has a 38% FARMS (Free And Reduced Meals).

In order to attempt to keep on the cutting edge of electronic technology it is imperative that we use the Internet because our textbooks become outdated daily. Using an LCD projector is the most efficient method for all students to understand the presentation at the same time.

Replacement bulbs are prohibitive to purchase when your budget is depleted. Our alternative energy group (Vocational Teachers) has been able to introduce an electric car and solar panels. The students love to work on these unique projects and try them out as they are being introduced nationwide. We will continue to be able to provide projects like these with an LCD projector.

We are currently aiming to install a Wind Turbine and LED Lighting. We can download video clips from the Internet, project them on the screen with an LCD projector and replacement bulb. Thus, our students will experience a virtual experiment with this new technology.
