Mrs. Adams from Four Oaks NC is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Remote Aensing Through Geo-caching

My students need 2 GPS units in order to understand the technology used all around them. Our unit on remote sensing and technology in science requires us to teach using new and up to date technology such as GPS units.

I teach science and social studies to 8th grade students in a very poor and rural area.

Many of my students live on farms and receive public assistance. They believe their future is on the farm. I want to show them more options through the uses of technology and science.

We need GPS units in order for our students to experience technology in a science and social study prospective. Students will use current technology to solve real world situations.

You will help my students see life's possibilities and the existence of a world besides theirs. You will empower them to think and problem solve real world situations and become more knowledgable in their world.
