Wireless Mice, Part 2

Help me give my students enough wireless computer mice with rechargeable batteries to complete our class set! We also need a heating pad for our snake, Zorro, as his is no longer working.

My Students

My students come into my class with smiles and usually ask, "Are we doing a lab today?" They enjoy the challenge and discovery that science has to offer. At my school, they have diverse backgrounds, cultures, socioeconomic statuses, and learning abilities. However, despite these differences, they have so much more in common with each other. My students are energetic, curious, willing to try, and ready to learn. They are engaged in science because our science department tries to put science in their hands as much as possible...with labs and projects that will make an impact on their learning. They enjoy learning by doing when the focus is on them discovering through inquiry.

My Project

Please help complete our class set of wireless mice!

The wireless mice will enhance our computer lessons, as students will be able to navigate through the projects with ease.

We are short a class set, so students have to share and rotate the wireless mice. This will ensure everyone has the chance to use them! Sometimes the track pads are hard for some students to use, and the mice come in handy. The rechargeable batteries will keep them up and running for a long time to come.

We also need a heating pad for our class pet, Zorro. His current heating pad is no longer working. He is a Mexican Rosy Boa and needs to stay warm at all times.
