Solid science education is the best inoculation against ignorance.
Project: Little Geologists Break Open Geodes!
|We'd like to be able to assist both small and large projects. Our hope is to present a new relatively modest project each week, and then feature a more ambitious project with a long-term deadline, so we can chip away at it each week when our main project is completed. Since DonorsChoose has something similar to a "rec list", every time we create a flurry of activity on a project, even if the dollar amounts involved aren't large, we can push the project up that list so it gets shown to more donors outside Daily Kos. In that way, we can help finish projects that may be beyond our means when only our own dollars are considered.|
When the main project is finished, let's work on this one.
Project: Creating Young Scientist one Project at a Time
Students from Ms. Hoffman's class working on chemistry labs from the project, Hard Working Young Chemists Need Lab Supplies!.
Last week, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funded half of every project that received the first half of the funds from citizen donors. With that boost, we were able to help complete 5 projects. Amazing!
Help Our Classroom to Learn MORE! was completed. Ms. Turner now has the manipulatives she needs to more effectively teach math and reading.
A Digital Laboratory with the Raspberry Pi Microcomputer was completed. Mr. Erbil's students will now be able to learn how to create digital interfaces to measurement instruments.
Friction: It's a "Rough" Life was completed. Mr. Timbs' students will have the tools they need to learn how friction is influenced by such factors as gravity, texture, and slope.
New News is Good News was completed. Mrs. Griewski's students will have access to information about current events and recent science news.
Let's Go Lego Robotics! was completed. Mrs. Wood's students get to play with robots!
You can see the teachers' thank-you notes at the links above. Many thanks to all contributors!

When projects are not fully funded by their expiration date, donors are contacted by DonorsChoose and asked to choose another project to which to redirect their donations. Occasionally, a fully funded project is called off for some reason internal to the school/teacher, and funding is returned. We have no way of knowing why, but DonorsChoose handles those donations in the same way as for expired projects.
