TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
Help me give my students yellow tangs to help clean the algae and a Copperband Butterfly Fish to control aiptasia in our classroom reef tank. The Tasselfish is included just because its cute!
I installed a huge 200 gallon classroom reef tank (7ft x 2ft x 2ft) to introduce my students to many chemistry topics. In addition, our school's marine biology students study its inhabitants too.
Coral reefs have some of the highest biodiversity in the world.
My students are friendly, bright and hardworking. About 60% come from low income families and none of them have ever studied saltwater fish and invertebrates first-hand. They have, however, expressed a strong interest in learning more about the marine fish and invertebrates and the reefs they live on. Many of my students also enjoy reading about them from our DonorsChoose donated library and dream of becoming veterinarians, astrobiologists, chemists, environmentalists and marine biologists.
These fish will help keep our marine reef tank interesting, clean and healthy. Throughout the school year, my students will learn hands-on about solution and acid/ base chemistry, Ksp, as well as basic and integrated laboratory process skills, ecology, and water quality/ pollution.
By exposing my students to the wonders of the reef, you will make a huge difference in my students' lives.
My kids experience great success on their AP exams each year as I try to tie-in all the chemical processes that occur in our classroom reef tank as it relates to the topics covered on the AP exam. Hopefully after learning about the reef and its inhabitants, my students will be more focused on helping preserve it in the future.
