Ms. Sanchez from Austin TX is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Saving the World One Experiment at a Time!

Help me give my students the opportunity to learn about the world they live in with the hands-on science activity kits. Making sense of the wonders of this world will open doors for students to become future scientists.

My Students

My students are beginning to discover their world through the sciences and math. Their questions need answers beyond the traditional worksheets/lectures or outdated videos.

To better understand the world around them, students need hands-on-activities to explore,investigate, and discover.

However, this is not always an easy task when these students attend a Title I school where more often than not, tools are not available.

My students are bright, smart, full of energy, and very inquisitive. Nothing compares to the sparkle in their eyes when suddenly they "discover" something new.

My Project

The hands-on activities science kits will be used to teach students topics such as Force, Motion, and Energy to mention only a few of the many topics taught throughout the year.

Students learn best by doing, and thus experimenting with the science kits is the best way for students to understand complex topics.

Have you ever had your child ask you why the moon is following him/or her? With the aide of the science kits students will experiment and find the answers for themselves. Nothing more gratifying than seeing the sparkle in a child's eye when they discover something new. What an awesome opportunity to show them the wonders of science.
