Mrs. Horton from Bakersfield CA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Tangible Tech Teaches STEM!

Help me give my students a super start with technology. We are increasing hands on STEM in the classroom everyday, and having these Chromebooks to support the lessons is crucial!

My Students

Our school is a very welcoming and inclusive place that promotes learning for all. We are an average sized school of about 600 students in a suburban neighborhood area. We are fortunate to have special education students mainstream in our classrooms daily to be a part of what we do and learn.

All of my students benefit from the wonderfully collaborative team of parents, teachers, and staff who strive to make amazing learning opportunities happen daily.

Because of this team, we are able to create meaningful lessons that enrich the learning process in all subjects. My class loves to explore learning by moving and working hands-on this year, so I have selected items to help them learn in the way that most appeals to them.

My Project

My students love and need access to updated technology. These Chromebooks will allow an ongoing STEM exploration station that facilitates lessons and videos that will drive science labs and learning. There are so many meaningful online programs for students to see real-world applications in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math, and these devices will allow those fields to come right inside our classroom.

By donating to this project, you are allowing my students to have access to the world of STEM in our classroom every day!

By having access to the internet and online platforms, my students can research their animal reports, learn about the Earth, rocks, minerals, enhance their understanding of mathematics with alternative videos, and learn about engineering practices. Technology will enhance and improve my ability to teach the Next Generation Science Standards and help my students become proficient on the computer.
