Mrs. Teal from York PA is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Science Exploration through Experimentation

Help me give my students laboratory supplies for the various physical, chemical and biological experiments that relate to content in our curriculum, which will engage students in hands-on activities.

My Students

My students love actively engaging in the learning process! Our classroom is a place of discovery as the students advance their foundation of knowledge and skills. My diverse students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom, such as poverty, language barriers, learning difficulties, and homelessness. However, they still desire meaningful learning experiences.

These budding scientists are seventh and eighth grade students in an urban Pennsylvania school that have a passion to investigate the world around them.

My goal is to provide them with the necessary opportunities and tools to further their education and to sustain their passion to grow academically.

My Project

The materials listed include a diverse assortment of supplies that can be utilized in laboratory experiments and demonstrations for the physics, chemistry, and biology content throughout the year. While some students can learn by just hearing or reading about the content, many students do not completely understand the scientific concepts until they can engage with content through experiments and activities. They will work in cooperative groups to use the scientific method and to hone the skills essentials to the field of science

These materials will allow the students to engage in hands-on activities that bring the content to life!

Instead of reading about the fossils of different periods, they can actually see and feel the specimen. They can use the resistors to explore circuits rather than just merely taking notes on them. By using the materials, the students will be able to make real-world connections as well as gain a better understanding of the content.
