The Problem

Many schools have chosen to become virtual due to the pandemic. Because of this, students are missing out on the hands-on science experience. As an elementary schooler, many of my interests stemmed from the experiments I did in class, and due to the pandemic, so many students don't have this opportunity.

Our Plan

I put together Leaf Chromatography kits for a 3rd-grade class in the elementary school I attended. Students will have the opportunity to pick up experiment kits during a one-week window and the following week, they will join a Zoom Call (scheduled for April 10) where I will walk them through the experiment. Once this is done, I will be reaching out to local libraries and assemble kits, and host such events throughout the summer. The experiments will be modified then to fit certain age groups.
