My Students

I teach multiple science subjects to students of all grades in the high school setting. One thing that my students all have in common is their genuine interest in laboratory investigations. They thrive when they are given hands-on activities and challenges.

My students are driven by curiosity and the desire to gain knowledge.

We are living in a world where STEM careers are very prominent and my students are working hard to learn new skills so that they can succeed. Learning this new information will help them to be competitive in these fields.

My Project

These supplies will help my students be able to discover how to use and properly care for a microscope using hands on materials. My students need to be able to keep up with the demand of a technology driven world. All of the items in my project are reusable.

Donating to my project you will help students years to come learn about science and keeping them interested with hands on activities.

Help students learn STEM by giving them an opportunity to calculate density using a density cube set. They will become scientists as they work to solve calculations making this project cross curricular.
