My students need a color printer in the classroom so that we can print creative ideas and things to manipulate in science!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Students are always excited about science! I try to make each day as exciting as the last with things that the students can touch and use in the classroom.
I teach both on level and honors and both biology and chemistry.
However, most of my students are curious by nature, as is required by a perceptive scientist! We are a school built on team building and collaboration, which models the scientific world we have created inside the classroom.
For example, the past few weeks we have been studying evolution and classification. My students need a color printer in the classroom so that we can print creative ideas and things to manipulate in science! It would be much easier for students to sort materials and identify them if they were printed in color versus the black and white copiers available in the school. Another example includes a fabulous timeline that the kids designed around the history of Earth...in which they were asking to print things out in color and I didn't have the resources.
Science is an exploratory subject and we humans have evolved color vision for a reason...why not use it?
I'd like to be able for students to have the necessary materials in color that they can use for years to come and I need the mechanism to do this which is a color printer.
