Hi there!

There's a project Alchemist Matter kit, I've been working on with several Museums since 2012 is now available on Kickstarter.


It's an educational tool that teaches how to create DIY materials through chemical reactions for children between 5-12 years old

It would be great having your opinion on the project and if you could spread the word.

Thank you,
Cheers, Laurence

Trying to raise money to raise engagement in 4th grade! What 4th grader doesn't love to play games? I would love to have remotes for the students to be able to respond to projected math, social studies, science and ELA questions with a game show twist! Please help me make learning fun and something my students look forward to by contributing to my DonorsChoose request. Every dollar helps!!!

I have a kids novelty book (The Pancake Menu) that is hands-on math fun and gets kids practicing math as they play restaurant. I would appreciate any social sharing and support with the Kickstarter! http://kck.st/1rA0zl7

I'm working to help veterans transition to a successful civilian career with my new program, Crush Your Transition Veterans Guide. Please take a look at my campaign and either support it or give me feedback to improve it. I've been instructing veterans for 12 years and I'm trying to extend my reach with this new book. http://www.gofundme.com/Jeffreyphillipy. Thank you for your support.

Author of "Actualized Learning," a vision for effective reform by restructuring the learning environments in our schools, so all children can realize their potential.

The key to true reform is restructuring the learning environments. We are stuck in an antiquated system that fails to guide students to the realization of their full potential. I recently finished a book, Actualized Learning, that provides a detailed blueprint for doing just that. Learners should be engaged within contexts that replicate and prepare them for the key facets of their lives. They should progress flexibly and appropriately. They should be evaluated in ways that illuminate their potential. The expense of effectively publishing and distributing this book are daunting. You can contribute to future generations by going to https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/actualized-learning/x/9545377
You can also learn more about this unique concept by visiting http://actualizedlearning.org/ and https://www.facebook.com/actualizedlearning
Thank you

"iPads for Boys in St. Louis Classroom" www.GoFundMe.com/eihsmo

Hello, my name is Jim Triplett, and I teach a gender-based classroom of 5th grade boys, in the St. Louis Public School District. I've been with these young men since 3rd grade, looped to 4th grade with them last year, and this year I looped again to 5th grade. I'm trying to raise funds to get iPads for each of my students, so they can learn and be engaged through the use of technology. Please visit my GoFundMe page to support through giving, and to see a picture and a video of the students who you would be helping! Thanks in advance!

5th Grade ELA/SS Teacher

This is my first year teaching 5th grade. I have taught 3rd grade for the past 7 years in a different school district. I would love to create a learning environment centered around technology and have started taking the steps toward this process by creating a donorschoose project. Please check out my first project. If you would like to give, make sure you enter the code INSPIRE at checkout to have your gift doubled. This code will only last until September 21.

Our class has an amazing chance to receive some tablets that will allow us to create and share new learning outside of our classroom walls. We are excited to share our learning and your generosity could help us get there. We have a matching grant so we only need to raise $240 to fully fund the grant. Make sure you use the code INSPIRE since it will double your money. That means we only need 6 people to donate $20 and use the code INSPIRE which will double their money . It could even be 12 people to donate just $10 and use the code INSPIRE to double their money and we will fund the project.


Thanks for your generosity and donorschoose.org for the great opportunities!
