My Students

The freshman class consists of students that are eager to learn through hands on lab based work. Their engagement has magnified their learning through the use of application. This has also given them some insight into possible careers and the types of skills needed for these careers.

Our students have a passion to learn by doing and are at a disadvantage currently due to missing important equipment to help them grow and learn from the hands on manipulation of science concepts.

With the use of this project, students will be able to explore further scientific concepts therefore opening the application of skills used in various careers.

My Project

Science is most effective when getting hands on lab experience. The students find themselves engaging and exploding their learning when up and moving around, supporting scientific evidence. The variety of supplies in this project help support just that.

My students would love to be able to break away from the classroom and go to the lab or participate in an escape room to learn and grow.

You can make a huge difference for my students and their like of science.

The kits in this project will give students a simulated view of what goes on in the real world and demonstrate to them the importance of knowing and understanding science. The breakout kits will allow students to apply their knowledge to escape the scenario.
