My students need 2 electronic weighing devices for quick measurements when their lab focus in not on mass.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Know what a slide rule is? We are not quite that antiquated, but our ancient triple beam balances have seen better days. It would be nice to have modern scales available to us in our science classroom. When the focus is not on mass, it would quickly provide an accurate measurement.
Our students are bright, budding middle school scientists-in-the-making.
This is the perfect age to intrigue and engage young minds and attitudes toward science, opening a future of fun! Basic classroom essentials are a necessary component in any successful science classroom if our philosophy is that DOING science is more engaging than READING ABOUT science!
Our classroom supplies almost 200 7th grade science students with an education. Our school is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, meaning the triple beam balances we have are 30 years old, too. In their behalf, they are still functional and will continue to be used as an essential science tool. It would be grand to add to that with modern scales, the ease of which could save us precious lab time, even when comparing our multiple triple beam balances to a couple of electronic scales.
Our amazing community and parents of the students have in just 3 days completely funded a much needed sterilization cabinet and safety glasses followed that third day with one electronic scale.
More are still wishing to donate and we would be grateful if a couple additional electronic scales could be the next needed blessing!!
