Show Me the Data!

My students need a laser monochrome printer for a cart of Chromebooks and a color laser printer for the classroom to link to Lab Quests.

My Students

My students love science. They enjoy exploring science through experiments where they see the concepts taught in class applied to real situations they can solve. Our science department now uses Vernier Lab Quests to collect data but we do not have a printer that allow students to print their graphs and data collected. We also have a cart of Chrome Books that students can use but not a means to print information from their work.

So just like my students use to hang their colored art work from elementary school on their refrigerator when they were younger, as older students they need a way to illustrate their science results in graphs and reports by being able to print from Lab Quests and Chrome Books.

Some of my students also spend their extracurricular time in events like Science Olympiad and Robotics which stretch their learning in science. The printer resource for Lab Quests and Chrome Books can be extended to these extracurricular activities too.

My Project

In my classroom I use two pieces of technology in my curriculum when teaching science. The first piece of technology I use is the Chrome Book cart so the students can access the internet to perform virtual labs and research. Unfortunately the cart assigned to the science wing does not have a printer so the work the students complete cannot be printed and handed in to the me. The virtual labs especially have graphs and visuals of the data they collected that illustrate the content taught in class that help them see the relationships they are studying. By ordering a laser monochrome printer for the cart the students will be able to print their lab reports and research.

The second piece of technology the students use in my classroom is the Lab Quest to collect data in experiments but they have no way to print off the graphs and data tables to display the findings.

By purchasing a laser color printer for the classroom they will be able to link the Lab Quests to the printer to print off the data tables and the graphs to include in their lab reports. This allows them to see the relationships of the content taught in class with the application of the experiments they performed in lab. Because color ink is more expensive, this printer will be reserved for just the Lab Quests.
