Inside Out....a Dissection Story

My students need dissection kits and trays (15) that lab teams can use to make their life science curriculum come "alive".

I have a class of budding scientists and I want them to have the opportunity to explore their hypotheses and curiosity.

Currently, the only science tool that is available to us is a virtual lab where two to three students must share a laptop computer per period and conduct a virtual dissection. Where is the hands-on experience in that? Having these dissections kits will allow for the students to fully explore Life Science - as we dissect a large variety of species from seeds and plants to worms and frogs.

I want my budding scientists to be able to physically do the labs; to be an active participate. Your donation of lab tools (kits)and trays would allow for my students to have such an experience.

Computers are fabulous, but these students need to be able to explore. To dissect. To draw conclusions from their hypotheses. They need the opportunity to get out of their books and into the world of science. They need to bring it "alive"! Help!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
