My Students

I am a teacher in a low-income school, with a diverse population of students. Many of my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep rigorous instruction in the classroom while providing my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

Many of my students thrive on hands-on learning and instruction.

My class has a love for learning and work hard to achieve their goals.

My Project

The microscope will help a student understand and see how different solutions and mixture might change when mixed together. Students will be able to see their mixtures and solutions before and after to see the differences and changes. The students will be able to display their projects on the active board using the microscope.

Giving low-income students access to new technology, the interactive microscopes Kenya digital, will give low-income students access to new technology and will be an investment in their future.

It will help students have a closer look at the changes when mixtures and solutions are mixed together. We will have the microscope hooked up to an active board for students to report on the changes of mixtures and solutions when mixed together.

Safety goggles will be used with our foss kits using the lessons on mixtures and solutions. Students will wear the goggles when using materials of mixtures and solutions for experiments that can be hazardous to eyes. While using the goggles students will learn the importance of safety in the classroom while conducting scientific experiments, observing, and mixing the mixture and solutions to

see and record results.
