Mrs. Bryant from Chapel Hill NC is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Scientific Researchers Need Microscopes

My students need 6 microscopes.

  • $554 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My fourth grade students would benefit tremendously from the use and experience with microscopes to aid their interest and curiosities in the fields of science and cellular development.

As students prepare for Science cumulative assessments, often times the hands-on experience gets left out when learning about their world around them. I have 27 active learners who spark interest in science studies and skills beyond what they are familiar with.

I will need 6 microscopes to aid in bridging the technological gap in our classroom. I'd love for science materials to become more common place in our 21st century learning environment. Microscopes would be the next step towards their advancement in inquiry-based learning.

In order for my students to obtain the hands-on experiences and processes to further their science skills and knowledge, we could use your sponsorship.
