Add STEAM to Online Learning with Gizmos

The Description

With these funds I will purchase 6 months of Explore Learning Gizmos for our senior high school. Our science teachers (14) are struggling to approximate a real science experience in the virtual setting. Gizmos offers a unique investigative experience that our students are missing out on while we are in an Online learning environment. We have piloted many Online simulations and this one is hands down the best way to supplement our virtual science classrooms. Many teachers say they want to have this even when the pandemic is over. 

Gizmos

Students get to investigate questions, manipulate variables, collect and analyze data. the topics range from life science to physical science and all incorporate math. 

Back Up Plan

If we do not reach our goal to fund for the entire building, I will purchase the gizmos application for our special education population and struggling students as a priority. Our back up to that would be to go back to the company and get a new pro-rated quote to get what we can out of the remainder of the year.
