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.
This project expired on December 15, 2018.
Hooray! This project is fully funded
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.
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.
