Mr. Anton Buck from Los Angeles CA is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Please Help Wire Up Our Piano Lab

Help me give my students the safety they need by covering the electric wiring and extension cords on the floor of their piano lab, as well as some crucially needed extension cords.

My Students

My students come from different backgrounds and ethnicities. Our school is located in one of the diverse areas of Los Angeles.

The students' socioeconomic backgrounds range from well-to-do families to foster kids.

In the classroom, one can hardly tell who is who, except when it comes to who has what and who doesn't. I'm referring to supplies that students may bring from home, such as electronic devices that can be used in the classroom to complete certain projects and other tasks.

My Project

My piano lab this year has a new and bigger room, but with fewer electric wall outlets. We need multiple extension cords and tape to connect the keyboard stations.

Also for the safety of our students, I need to cover all the electric cables running on the floor with special cable covering pads.

This will ensure the safety of our students as they walk over these wirings, as well as the safety of our equipment.

Currently, we have forty keyboard stations that serve about one hundred twenty students every day. Ensuring student safety and the safety of the equipment they use is a priority.
