Hooray! This project is fully funded
Do you remember what it was like the first time you entered the chemistry lab of a university? Students need to be exposed to the technology and lab equipment that they will encounter in pursuing a higher degree of education.
Our students are part of an urban multi-cultural school.
Our school population consist mostly of minorities; these students face multiple challenges on a daily basis. The majority need extra assistance in preparing for a four year college/university. Many fail to have exposure to higher level laboratory practices.
Students will become familiar with lab techniques and equipment that they would encounter in a first year chemistry course. With the donations students will receive a class set of Vernier LabQuest 2 equipment including probes for pH, temperature, conductivity, and spectrophotometers. In addition, students will receive a tablet to upload class data and run chemistry applications. Students will also be receiving hot plates, sanitation goggle cabinet, and electronic balances.
It will increase the rigor of the AP Chemistry curriculum and better prepare the students for the AP exam. Therefore, students will become more competitive in the coming years as they pursue higher education.
This is important to us because our school will never see this laboratory equipment without the funding provided by donorschoose.org.
Students will not have the opportunity to experience higher level laboratories practices.
