The Future Looks Bright with a Solar Powered Fish Pond

Help me give my students a solar powered Pond Pump for our new pond on campus.

  • $393 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My school is a Title I public school built in 1960 in a once glorious but now economically challenged section of Tampa, where multiple families live in single family homes.

Big-hearted parents want the best education for their children who are 2nd generation Americans.

Every little bit of help makes a big difference in the lives of the students. There are several tuition funded college prep schools that draw from the population of our area. The economic divide can be felt in our school. Together you and I can make a difference.

My Project

Solar Power is the future of the worlds energy needs! With a solar powered Pond Pump, students will learn how the power of the Sun can be used for a project they care about. When they see how solar panels can power the pond that they have built and maintain, they will be inspired to think of different uses for solar power. This type of hands-on learning project is more powerful than anything they can read in a textbook or see in a video. It also works well in our unit on Alternative Energy Sources. Thank to donors like you, the future looks bright.
