Ms. Flynn from Yuma AZ is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Magnifying Curiosity

My students need microscopes to fuel their interest in science. Bringing STEM into my classroom has increased engagement significantly. My students are hungry for more learning!

My Students

I teach a class of second graders who all speak Spanish as a first language. All of our students receive free lunch due to the high poverty in the area we serve. Many of my students come from families who have immigrated from Mexico to give them the opportunity to learn in our school. Some have parents who work long hours picking fruits and vegetables to make enough money to send their child to school with a backpack and a pencil.

No matter what stress my students overcome at home, they all come to school with smiles on their faces.

They are eager to learn and hungry for new experiences. They are grateful for classroom resources like crayons and books, because they may not have those at home.

My Project

Ever since my students started learning through observation, my classroom has taken on a whole new energy. There is an excited buzz in my room every morning as students add to their photo record of our ant farm or jot down some noted about waterdogs visiting from another classroom. The writing flows out of them, and so do the questions.

With STEM, students who are normally quiet and disengaged have become leaders and critical thinkers.

I am determined to keep this engagement up, because it will help my students become future leaders and problem solvers. Classroom microscopes would help my students pursue their passions.
