Please Help Fund our Trip to the San Francisco Exploratorium

My students need transportation for our field trip to the San Francisco Exploratorium. Please help fund this project...my students are looking forward to this trip.

My Students

Do you remember the first time you set foot into a hands-on scientific museum? My students are ecstatic to attend the San Francisco Exploratorium. We are currently learning about the solar system, gravity, and different rock formations that makes up our environment.

My 5th grade students thrive on learning new things.

They come ready to learn in my class and they are always eager to learn more. A lot of my students come from a low social economic with 96% being English Language Learners. I would love for my students to get a chance to attend this field trip, so they can make connections with real life and what we have been learning in the classroom. Students will document and keep a journal through out this process. This will help us record, predict, and learn about new topics on this field trip. My students are always positive and I know they won't take this field trip for granted. They are always excited when it comes to learning about science and working on different scientific experiments.

My Project

I believe all students can achieve the greatest educational experience possible with the right resources. Please help me fund this project, so that we can take two classes that will benefit from the learning that will take place on this field trip. Students will learn how science impacts their lives and how it plays a big part of their daily lives. They will see how important it is to follow through with their observation, investigation, predictions, and experiments.

My project is important because it will allow students to be exposed to science in a whole new element.

Nothing beats learning through a rich and hands-on environment. I hope by taking them on this field trip that their horizon will be broaden and they will appreciate science even more. Thank you for any help you can give us!
