Hooray! This project is fully funded
Hello! We are an urban high school located in the great Show-Me state! We are located in a high need community, and serve about 600 inner city students at our school. This proposal is to benefit about 150 of those students, who are taking 10th grade biology.
Biology is crucial in our state, because it is the only high school science state tested subject. As such, students need to be especially prepared for the End Of Course, or EOC test. In order to do so, I want to get our students sets of dissecting materials. Dissection is a fun and hands-on way of learning the important factors of biology, and as of now our students have not had the chance to experience this fundamental lab component.
We would like to receive a new classroom set of dissection tools. In order to perform dissections, we have to have these tools, such as scalpels and scissors. In addition, we need to get dissection pans, so that the students can pin their specimens in them for the lab study. These materials will help students visualize important biology concepts, such as the anatomy of a frog, and help them be more prepared for their EOC test!
Because we are in a high need community, we need your help. We cannot purchase these items as a department, because there is not a budget at this time for such things. With your generosity, we can make our science program stronger, and enhance our students' education! Please consider donating to our project today!
