Hooray! This project is fully funded
Have ever struggled to understand something you can not see? Have you ever thought if I can not see it then it must not be there. My science students need to have opportunities to see what is not there. Having prepared slides of microorganisms and of cells from the human body.
The students in my class are full of energy, wonder, and enthusiasm.
They come from various diverse cultures, speak different languages, and many of their families are struggling economically. They attend a culturally diverse school that in the state of Washington. These students are always asking why and how. If you where to come to my classes at first glance you will see a very diverse student population and a wide variety of science knowledge. What you might not see at first glance is a group of students that wants to know more about their world.
Students learn science best when they are allowed to experience science “hands-on,” and having more prepared slides will enhance the current microbiology and biotechnology educational opportunities that are offered to our students. Also, this will allow students to work in pairs and make better observations of microorganisms. The students will all be able to study microorganisms and cell structures at the same time.
So why should you help our students, they are our future.
Everyone needs to have a basic understanding of science and their world. Our students want to know the how and the why. When our students have a better understanding of life science ,biology, they are in a position where they can positively affect the world around them. Knowledge is power.
