My Students

Do you have a passion for science? I love Science and I want my students to enjoy it just as much as I do. The problem I face is that we have a poorly written science textbook. I am in need of engaging Science reading materials to help my students better understand and enjoy Science.

Our campus is located on a military base in Texas.

My students come from all walks of life and many come to me with several gaps in their education because of this. My students are full of energy and love to learn. They want to learn more but unfortunately we don't have the funds to do this.

My Project

I am requesting reading materials that will help engage my students about different Science topics. With the use of these activities my students will get a better understanding of Science by reading about it and applying it to their personal lives. These materials with help students get a better understanding of Science topics that will have a lasting impression on them.

This will impact my students so much.

Many of my students struggle with Science due to our poorly written Science textbook but with these reading materials my students will gain an appreciation and love for Science.
