My Students

Our institution is a tuition-free public-charter college-preparatory academy that serves students in the North Phoenix area. Our students are demographically diverse, coming from a broad range of racial, ethnic and economic backgrounds.

Our students are exceptionally focused and committed to a challenging, academically rigorous curriculum.

Each student takes two years of physics and calculus as well as chemistry, biology and a broad range of humanities, classics and fine arts courses. These students are idealistic and driven – eager to get on to college and beyond, where they can engage the issues of the day and make a difference.

Laboratory exercises provide students with an in-depth, immersive experience of the physics principles that we teach in class. Through these opportunities our students acquire a depth of knowledge that enables them to succeed at a much higher level in their university studies. Having access to modern electronics and electrical lab equipment is particularly important to our highly motivated, college-bound students.

My Project

Setting up an Electronics Student Learning Center will transform our classroom environment regarding the learning opportunities that we can offer our students. Currently we can only perform simple, basic physics experiments using largely homemade equipment. This does not allow us to introduce our students to rigorous explorations of advanced phenomena or technologies such as electronics. As a public charter school our annual physics budget is less than $850. The equipment that we need to engage our students around these exciting technologies is beyond our reach, so a Wishes for Teachers grant will finally give our physics students access to challenging, relevant laboratories that reflect the most advanced aspects of our course.

I will also be able to use this equipment for classroom demonstrations, extracurricular projects through our Physics and Engineering Club and for outreach activities with local elementary schools and middle schools.
