Ms. Sanford from Howe OK is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

This Year First Graders....Next Year STEM Engineers!

My students need safe science materials such as safety googles, test tubes, and magnifying glasses to conduct hands on learning experiences.

My Students

The students in my classroom come from a variety of backgrounds. While most come from a low socioeconomic background, I do not want this to stop them from reaching their full potential in the classroom. We are in a small rural area, making it difficult for students to experience STEM activities.

I want my students to be able to expand their knowledge through various hands-on learning experiences.

I believe that every child deserves a chance to learn through hands-on projects.

My Project

I believe that students learn best by doing. The experiments that we do now in my classroom are limited due to inadequate safety materials. I want my students to have the opportunity to do the science experiments with me instead of just standing back and watching. If they were able to have a class set of safety goggles, they would be able to each participate in the science experiments.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.

With a class set of safety goggles, my students will be able to each participate in hands-on experiments in a safe manner. If we are able to get a class set of magnifiers, test tubes, eyedroppers, and prisms for every table, students will get to actually participate in the experiments rather than stand back and watch a few individuals demonstrate.
