Solid science education is the best inoculation against ignorance.
Project: The Lost Ladybug Project
|We try to focus on the main project until it is completely funded, and then move on to the bonus project. If a project doesn't meet its funding goal by its deadline, it dies and any donations to it are referred to their donors to be moved to another project. For that reason, we don't like to split our sometimes limited resources between two open projects. Of course the choice of project to which you donate (if any!) is entirely yours.|
When the main project is finished, let's work on this one.
Project: Students Want to Heat Things Up!
Lately, we've had a lot of success and paid for our projects early, leaving no way for latecomers to participate. While that's great, it's also a missed opportunity to help one more teacher. If you arrive and find bonus project #1 finished, please direct your donations to this project. We'll return to it as needed in future diaries.
Project: Hands-On Organ Systems
Many thanks to everyone who helped TIP celebrate the completion of its 300th project last week. The party was a huge success and we completed another FIVE projects. They are:
Identifying Metal Pollutants in Water: High school students in Sevierville, TN will get the chemicals and supplies they need to measure metal pollutants in water.
I Want To Be An Astronaut!: Elementary school students in Houston, TX will get the globe, telescope kit, solar system and books that they need to study space and the planets.
Science Explosion: Elementary school students in Cartersville, GA will get the books and supplies they need to study rocks, fossils, minerals and erosion.
What Is In That Soil?: High school students in Hinesville, GA will get the soil quality kit for their AP environmental science lab.
Physics Of Sound: High school students in Salt Lake Cty, UT will get the tuning forks, slinkys and logitech speaker system they need to sound and wave characteristics.
You can see the teacher' thank-you note at the link 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.
See our list of successfully funded projects. We're up to 310!
