Hooray! This project is fully funded

I have 28 first grade students who love to learn by actually performing. Our school is located in the inner city of Chicago and all of my students receive free lunches. I would love to give this great group of students a chance to learn about simple machines and other science topics by actually creating their own machines. Therefore, I really hope that you can assist me in providing my students will as much information and hands on materials to create simple but valuable science experiments using materials that they often do not get the opportunity to use at home. Thank you in advance for your help.
