My Students

My Physics students want to use the Internet more often to do research and study.

I teach College Prep.

Physics to a great group of students at a Southern California Public Charter School. My students are Tech savvy and are currently turned off by the computers I am able to offer in my class room. They love to study by using online practice tests and review exercises but often cannot with my current technology.

My Project

This computer will allow my students to use more of the amazing features of the Internet then they can using our current computers. They will be able to take practice quizzes and do review problems and exercises without the hassle of eight to ten year old computers that have definitely become out of date.

Your funding of this HP Netbook computer will directly effect my students attitude toward using technology in order to be better prepared for exams and to develop a deeper understanding of Physics.
