All Girls STEM School Needs AP Biology Lab Supplies

My students need the updated AP Biology lab supplies, lab stools, and lab station organizers.

My Students

We are a public, all-girls, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) middle and high school in Los Angeles, California. We opened in 2016 with grades 6 and 9, and grow a grade per year to eventually become a full SPAN (grades 6-12) school by the 2019-20 school year.

Did you know that girls within Los Angeles Unified School District perform at the same level or above their male peers in math and science while in elementary school?

And yet, their scores on standardized tests in math and science decline as they progress through middle and high school. Not only that, as students move through school, fewer girls take STEM classes than boys.

Our school is here to change that and our girls need your help! We welcome all girls within the school district who are committed to a highly rigorous, college preparatory curriculum focused on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

My Project

This is our second year as a school and we are working on accumulating all of the necessary equipment to run AP biology. While we have made a lot of progress, there is still a long way to go!

In this project, I am asking for more lab stools, the equipment for the "Origin of Life" lab from Carolina, and an organizer for each lab station.

Currently, we have a little plastic bin at each station and it gets very cluttered with all of the supplies, books, and goggles. Having the organizers will help keep their stations cleaner and safer during labs. The lab stools will be a great addition to the classroom so the students don't need to always move chairs around the room when they go from their desks to their labs. Finally, this lab equipment from Carolina will be used year after year with small refill costs.

Thank you so much for considering our school and for helping to build our program for years to come!
