My students need Chromebooks to support our math and science curriculum.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I am fortunate to teach 6th grade math and science. I love that I get to intertwine these subjects that so clearly rely on one another. I have about 105 students throughout the day that come from various economic situations and backgrounds. Our students come from about 5 or 6 different elementary schools from our enormous district.
While most students live in the community where our school is located, many other students take buses in early each morning to get to school on time.
I have three core classes throughout the day. One of these core class is a collaboration class with students that have IEPs or other special needs. I have another teacher or aide in my class during these periods to assist these students and their varying needs.
As we move to incorporate more STEM experiences into our regular curriculum, we need to have technology at my students' fingertips so that they can jump in whenever they need. Our school currently has several Chromebook carts to share among classrooms, but this is often very limiting to our needs. Even when we have a cart checked out, they only hold 32 computers, and my classes have up to 37 students. Getting these extra 5 Chromebooks means that all of my students will have access to the technology necessary to succeed in our math and science classroom. When we don't have a cart checked out, it would be great to have a few Chromebooks on hand for students to do impromptu research or work on projects and coding.
