Goal

Our goal is precision in science. We would like to acquire 5 digital scales to check the masses of different objects and chemicals in science labs.  

 

What will be done with my students

Throughout the year we measure the mass of different objects for calculations such as density, acceleration, momentum, gravitational pull, force and chemicals for reactions. My goals in science are to have hands on application of science concepts. We build roller coasters, rockets, cars, flinkers (an object that doesn't float or sink), elephant toothpaste and calculate our own physical abilities as humans. Measuring mass is a skill learned early on using a triple beam balance. I would like students to also have the ability to check their skills with a digital scale.  

 

Benefits to my students

Using a digital scale would give faster more realistic and precise way to obtain the mass of certain objects.  

 

Describe the Students

Our students are the best. We have students are of mixed abilities. We have ESE and Gifted students, and levels 1-5 for FCAT Reading and Math. Besides their levels we have kind, inquisitive, and academically motivated students. Each student here, choose to attend our school and I truly believe I have some of the best and brightest in the county. 

 

Budget Narrative

I am requesting 5 digital scales for my science classroom. These scales would be used throughout the year and future years for scientific investigations.
