Wanted: New Lab Tables for Budding Scientists, Redux

My students need lab tables to allow them a chance to receive the quality education they deserve. I had to switch classrooms, and the new room does not have an adequate number of safe lab tables.

My Students

My students are a diverse group, with a wide range of academic ability. They all have one thing in common: they love hands-on, minds-on lab activities that give them the opportunity to investigate scientific phenomena.

Many of my students are kinesthetic learners- meaning, their learning takes place best when they carry out physical activities, rather than listening to a lecture or watching demonstrations

They have a variety of learning styles and needs, but they do have one thing in common - they love to learn, to explore, and together, we are helping them develop a growth mindset.

My Project

I am refurnishing our science lab one or two tables at a time. These student lab tables have legs and aprons that are solidly constructed and are finished with a clear, chemical-resistant UV finish. They are equipped with nonskid, adjustable glides for precise leveling and stability which will allow my students to perform experiments on a safe, flat surface.

My students' well-being is always of utmost importance.

I do not want my students doing lab activities on tables that are slanted, allowing for spillage or creating an unsafe learning environment. Finally, in order to get a full, rich lab experience, they need to be able to make measurements with tools that are resting on a flat surface so they get accurate readings.
