Science Supplies to Engage and Amaze

My students need engaging labs and hands on experiences and the proper materials and safety equipment to make this happen.

My Students

Help! Students love science when they can put their hands on it, but right now students in my school can't put their hands on it! Please help me to make my labs and activities engaging by making them safer and more interesting!

My school is a challenging inner city middle school in Northwest Philadelphia.

We have traditionally done poorly on the science state testing, but I am looking to change that this year. My students are 90% below the poverty line, and many come from broken homes. I have seen the power of a good science education to give them critical thinking skills and make them interested in academics, but I need your help to make my class more engaging.

My Project

Most of the resources I am requesting are specifically to make labs more complete and engaging. Many of the supplies I have available are great, but I lack two major components to good science labs: safety equipment and measuring tools! Too often I have to do labs as demonstrations for lack of appropriate materials, and the students are not as engaged, nor do they make that hands on connection that is so crucial.

I want to make this year the year that our students make large and lasting gains in their science understanding, and I can only do that with successful labs.

With these materials, students will be able to get their "hands dirty" in a way I could not let them before, but they have so often demanded!
