Computer Microscope USB, $69.95, 0.00% raised
Computer Microscope USB Rank:
Single Unit Why I need this:
Students in life science classes learn microscope skills that they will carry on to high school. Being able to project how to focus a microscope, for example, would be a more effective use of time rather than doing this individually with 30 students. Projected microscopic images can be used for class discussion and evaluation.
Quantity: 1 Price: $69.95
This USB Microscope allows for real-time display on computer screens, enabling multiple students to view detail at the same time.

Class Description:
I teach earth science, life science, and environmental science.
Science teacher
Lap top computers so that students may search for answers when the answers are asked, and not be dependent on when the computer lab schedule opens up. A video conferencing camera so that we may participate in the California State Park's PORTS program and have ranges guide students in real time through historic sites. Also, I would like students to connect in real time with students and scientists from other locations.
My Philosophy:
Learning is more effective when students are active and exploring. Lessons are remembered when they are relevant to students' lives. Science students should act like scientists: do research, gather data, create reports, and share information with others around the globe. Collaborating with students and scientists from other cities and countries makes science lessons more meaningful and realistic.

Why Do I Teach?:
I teach because I enjoy seeing middle school students start to recognize and work toward their potential. My classes feature hands-on learning with real life applications. Lots of labs, lots of discovery, lots of fun! Classes are not based on worksheets. I try to be a teacher that I would want my own children to have.
