I want to make sure my students have the materials they need to succeed, so I just created a request for my classroom at DonorsChoose.org: 

Adventures in STEM: Chromebooks for Creating and Collaborating 

Give to my classroom by May 29, 2015 and your donation will be doubled thanks to DonorsChoose.org. Just enter the code SPARK on the payment page and you'll be matched dollar for dollar (up to $100). 

If you chip in to help my students, you'll get awesome photos and our heartfelt thanks. 

Thanks so much, 

P.S. If you know anyone who may want to help my classroom, please pass this along! 
The DonorsChoose.org Team
