Help me give my students an interactive learning experience through a nearpod subscription.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I teach Algebra 1 to enthusiastic 9th graders. They love working in groups and they love the freedom to move around and learn in a comfortable environment. The kids build each other up and feed off of ideas by others. The majority (around 75%) of my students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch and struggle just to get the basic school supplies. What they lack in supplies, they more than make up for in excitement and a love for each other.
My students love learning; they just need the resources many of us take for granted!
They work well together, but many are lacking the things we utilize every day. Were you to meet these students, you would never know they were struggling for anything. They work hard, and many times you can find groups of them helping each other.
How do kids learn better?? Hands on, and interactive, of course. I would like to have a Nearpod subscription with Virtual Reality trips, plus many other advantages Nearpod offers.
Help me give my students access to a world they never knew existed.
I teach at a Title I, low-income school. Many of my students never travel farther than 20 miles from home. With Nearpod VR, I can give them experiences they never would have had otherwise.
Imaging walking into a classroom where the students are not only learning about Algebra, but able to experience the land and time it was first discovered, or watching a Space Shuttle trajectory, or plotting the path of a bottle they have tried to flip. The possibilities are endless!!
