Mrs. Corkery from Philadelphia PA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Super Scientists!

My students need hands on science materials, like activity tubs for plants, rocks and soil, and matter, and nonfiction readers to explore the world around them.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Do you remember what it was like to see the seed you planted sprout, or the first time something was picked up by a magnet?. Help us discover the world around us with materials!

We are a title one school in an urban community.

We are a school that has over 30 languages. We currently have no materials for hands on science and are very anxious to get our hands on materials to help explore!We are very interested in science with concepts such as magnets, plants, rocks, soil and matter. We love to learn hands on, and through different modalities.

My Project

Through the instant science kits, along with the vibrant colored nonfiction readers, we will be able to actively be involved in our education for science. We could explore the concepts of our world around us and become super scientist! Maybe we will discover something new. We are ready to explore, all we need is you!

We are very curious students who are eager to explore our world.

With these science materials and readers, we can be the creator of our experiences and guide our learning on our own levels. We can explore the world and discover our futures!
