A Blog Around The Clock

Science Teachers in action

The fifth part of Kevin’s snake research in rural China is coming up on this blog today at noon. How do you think Kevin became such a scientist at such a young age? And how can we get more Kevins? Answer: science teachers in our schools. That is why we need to help teachers make science alive and exciting for their little charges. Just lookk at what is needed:

How about Dino-Mite!, in which a SC teacher needs just $221 dinosaur books for the school library.

Or Scientists in the Making, for a teacher in a Gifter & Talented Magnet school in rural North Carolina in which 48% of the students are from low income families. They need just $308 to subscribe to Scholastic’s Super Science magazine.

Or Bacteria All Around Us!, in which an 8th grade teacher needs an agar plate kit for growing bacteria. Only $180 are still needed for this project to be fully funded.

Or a 1st grade teacher in a San Jose, CA, school with 74% low-income students? Science Experiements, Reading and Writing, all in One needs just $714 to buy the needed books.

Or look at other projects on my list, or lists of other SB bloggers. Ten dollars is enough, if many of us contribute.
