When we do our more-or-less annual Donors Choose drive, we’re always pleasantly surprised at how many readers are willing to throw in a few bucks to help school kids in poor areas learn science. So now we’re not asking for money — we’re just saying thanks. (Of course there are always good projects looking for donations.) The best part of the process is the thank-you letters that trickle in from the classes that are helped. Here are some pictures from a few of those classes, using their new materials.
Ms. D’s classroom in Ohio bought science fair supplies.
Mrs. P’s class in Texas purchased a binding machine and plastic binding strips for use in repairing paperback books.
Mrs. L’s classroom in Texas purchased thermometers.
Ms. M’s classroom in Nevada bought “Fun Math Centers.”
Thanks to everyone who donated. You never know what kind of impact you may have had.
