Mx. K. from Oklahoma City OK is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Supplies and Stool Seating to Start the Year!

My students need markers when working in groups to complete projects, earbuds to listen to audio content while doing self-paced online lessons, and stools as an alternative seating option in my lab room.

My Students

My biology students have been working hard this past month to develop and reinforce their basic scientific skills including conducting experiments with pill bugs and using microscopes to see cells. As the year progresses, my students will grapple with the molecular structure of DNA, chart hereditary traits, and examine the ecological world around them (including dissecting frogs!).

My students attend a Title I school on the South side of Oklahoma City where 100% of students receives free breakfast and lunch.

Our school has a student population that is 76% Hispanic, 12% White, 8% Black, and 4% Native American. Although the majority of students face numerous barriers during their educational career, including language barriers and the effects of intergenerational poverty, they come to school and try their best.

For all my students with an interest in science, having the materials to conduct labs and show their learning will be critical to their development as future doctors, nurses, and researchers. For those who wish to follow other career paths, the foundations of scientific thinking (logical, purposeful, and data-driven) will support them no matter which endeavor they pursue.

My Project

I want my students to be as engaged as possible in the classroom, and this project focuses on 3 different aspects: putting the A for Art in STEAM (normally STEM = Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), incorporating videos in self-paced tech lessons, and accommodating students who need alternative seating.

My students deserve an engaging STEM class with materials and furniture that meet their needs.

Not every student thinks science is inherently interesting when they walk into my classroom, but by doing hands-on activities and labs, they learn to appreciate the content at least a bit. For those students who are artistically inclined, using colored markers on posters to demonstrate their learning is great. Additionally, all scientists must develop the skills to sketch scientific processes!

Online, self-paced lessons on Chromebooks allow me to help students individually as needed, but in order for those lessons to be really interesting, they need to be able to watch videos or hear sound clips. Having a class set of earbuds would fix this problem.

Some of my students have a hard time sitting in my desks (which have attached chairs). Stools will allow flexibility for my students who need to be able to stretch their legs or stand up throughout the class period.
