Mr. Heitman from Corona NY is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Science is Fun....But Sometimes We Need to Print It!

My students need to be able to print their work when in class. Many of my students are not able to print their work.

My Students

My students come from social economical situations that most people would find hard to even believe exist. Trying to provide an atmosphere that is safe and free to their creative expressions is what this printer can help do. Copying work when they are absent, and printing their work when it is due.

To say my students are not the best would be an understatement.

They are smart, funny, and trying their best in a system that is not always fair to them. Because of the great administration here in New York, the school is a safe place for our students, free to learn and explore science with out boundaries.

My Project

The Xerox, 6015ni is a multifunction printer, allowing for color detail to be brought into the science classroom. When students are asked to print their work, they will be able to express themselves with color. Although a color printer, the replacement cost for this printer is one of the lowest in the industry and can be maintained under our classroom cost.

Freedom.

Freedom to help create and equal education for students in an area that was once forgotten. Our students can be better than the best schools in America, but having the same resources is the first step. Help make their first step as memorable as Neil Armstrong's First Step on the Moon, and a leap in their education.
