Triple Beam Balances

My students need two triple beam balances.

Hands on science is the best way to teach students the thought process that will open doors to scientific discovery. I have been teaching physical science and chemistry to high school students grades nine through twelve for thirteen years. Our high school is in a rural community with limited tax base.

Our science budget over the past few years has been diminishing. My top priority when budgeting for supplies has been to obtain the many chemicals that get used up over the course of the year so that labs can be done again the following year. Once those costs are squeezed out of the budget, no money is left to replace old equipment. Several of the triple beam balances my students use no longer provide accurate data and are in need of being replaced. With the current financial state in our district, I do not see how that will ever be possible.

In the short period of time my students have to complete labs, it has become impractical to use one or two functioning balances in class for thirty students. Since my classroom functions daily with hands on science investigation, balances are used every day. Without enough balances, unfortunately, some of these hands on activities will have to be discontinued.

Your help will ensure that my students will continue to learn science by doing, by gathering their own data and interpreting the information to draw logical conclusions.
