Seeing the World Up Close

My students need a microscope that can be viewed from the computer.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach fourth grade science at an at risk school. Most of the student population lives below the poverty line. My school also has a large population of English language learners.

Microscopes are a wonderful opportunity to expose my students to hands of science. While I have enough microscopes for small groups to use, I do not have enough for all my students to use them at once.

Thanks to Donors Choose and kind donors like you, I have a wonderful projector that will take anything from the screen of my computer and project it onto the board. With your help a computerized microscope would allow my students can view and talk about microscope slides as a whole group.

This is a wonderful opportunity to open up the microscopic world young people. We might even inspire a few future scientist. Please help me make this possible
