Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a Sci-Lab and Math-Lab teacher for students in grades 3-5. The school at which I teach is a Title I school, composed mostly of African-American and Latino- American children. The great majority of the students come from low-income families, many of who have fathers serving prison sentences. I would like my students to have waterproof max/min digital thermometers for use in various experiments. Having such instruments would provide a number of advantages. First, the ability of my students to accurately take temperature readings would be greatly enhanced. They would also be able to take measurements much more quickly. Third, such thermometers would be far more durable and reliable than the cheaper ones my students presently use. Finally, because of the advantages mentioned above, the abilities of my students to stay engaged and on task would be enhanced. With a maximum seating capacity of twenty-four 24 students in the Sci-Lab, having 24 thermometers will provide one for each student. Being able to supply my students with such technologically superior instruments will help foster an environment in which greater excitement for scientific learning will occur.
