Ms. Jackson from Shreveport LA is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Science Lab to the Rescue!

My students need safety goggles so that they can conduct Science experiments safely. Our Science lab has not been used in years and our equipment is very old and out dated. We must update our lab!

My Students

I am very excited to teach over 200 bright and wonderful minds this year. We are focused on excelling in STEM and Science. These students come from various backgrounds, most of which are middle to lower income families. Their parents work quite often, so quality time is at a minimum in the household. They are excited to try new concepts and are very eager to learn new things.

My class goal is collaboration and creative thinking, which is needed for today's workforce.

I want my students thinking outside the box. When I walk into my class every day I do see our future. I see inventors, doctors, teachers, lawyers; anything out there for them to accomplish is right here in my class. It is my mission and ministry to help them find their rightful place in this world and make an impact.

My Project

We finally have a lab! This year I am excited to be the STEM/Discovery Lab teacher at our school. This year students in grades K-5th will be introduced to Science experiments, STEM, and other projects that will connect Science and Engineering to other subjects. Our current lab has not been used in years and is very outdated.

Updating our lab will allow students to have updated equipment to conduct all sorts of experiments and projects.

Having this equipment will allow me to help students go beyond the textbook and into a world full of learning in Science and STEM. This lab is much needed and the students are excited to finally have a class dedicated to Science and STEM.
