Our school is a small neighborhood school that serves the community around it. Many of our families are new to the country and many of our students are first-generation Americans. Our neighborhood is in a low-income area in Houston, Texas and our school is a Title I School.
Our students do not regularly get access to activities an experiences outside of the neighborhood.
Our school serves as the base for all exploration to the outside world. They depend on the school to broaden their horizons and challenge them.
Our students will have the opportunity to have hands-on lab experiments that will improve their understanding of our science standards. It will also instill a deeper connection and interest in Chem/STEM. The acids that I am ordering have never been used in our middle school before, and I'm excited to finally be able to conduct experiments that use them and can produce the reactions needed to show my students various types of chemical changes. The laboratory supplies are basic needs for a science lab to ensure that my students are safe and can handle materials with care. Being able to see chemical reactions first-hand, and use laboratory grade equipment is key to fostering a life-long curiosity of all things science.
