Help me give my students 10 mass sets, 5 ring stands, clamps, and magnet wire for physics activities.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I teach six sections of physics and earth science and have 200 students. My school is located in an urban area and has 2900 students in it. Our school is the oldest one in the city.
My students are a diverse mix of low and high income urban students.
They represent many ethnic and racial groups. I also teach a wide array of classes.
I teach earth science, general physics, honors physics, Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate Physics. The students all love applied science and hands-on activities.
My students are working with stands and mass sets that are falling apart. New ring stands, mass sets and magnet wire will help students complete a variety of experiments in physics and earth science. They will use masses and ring stands to study the period of pendulums, stretch springs in Hooke's Law studies, and study equilibrium in our forces unit. The masses are also used in studies of collisions, energy and momentum in conjunction with dynamics carts. Ring stands are also used to support and demonstrate optical and wave phenomena. The electric wire will be used to build speakers out of paper cups.
