My Students

F. Technology High School is a small public high school in Ventura California. Our school is a part of Ventura Unified School District and our admission is based upon a lottery. Families that choose to enter the lottery typically do so because they feel as though their students would benefit from a smaller school environment and closer relationships with teachers.

My Conceptual Physics and College Preparatory Chemistry classes support students who need mathematics intervention.

Approximately 40% of our student body receives free or reduced priced school lunch. This number is even higher for the students who are enrolled in my science classes (as opposed to honors and AP science).

I have found that more and more students are coming to class without the basic tools that they need to succeed, such as rulers, protractors and scientific calculators. It is also increasingly difficult to work on engineering projects. I am hoping that your organization can help me to meet that gap.

My Project

My students will use these tools to analyze data from chemistry and physics labs on a daily bases. At the end of the year, physics students will create Roller Coaster Blue-Prints that they will use to analyze motion and forces of a fictitious roller coaster. It is a fun and challenging end to the year, yet frustrating without the right tools.

In the past, I have borrowed supplies from the math department but this really isn't ideal.

We need our own tools for drawing, measuring and analyzing student data from the blueprints for calculations. Thank you for considering to help us with this project!
