Cutting Cadavers and Creating Cultures
My students need dissecting supplies, microscope slides, and Petri dishes for culture growth in the Biology classroom.
Biology is the study of life, and so much life happens inside of bodies and at microscopic levels. With your help my students will have the ability to learn more than ever about the processes and organs that drive life on this earth.
My ninth grade scientists are incredible.
I have students with botany hobbies, paleontology internships, veterinarian experience, and sports science interests.
I also have students that have next to no experience actually DOING science. I plan on using these tools to get these students some experience and interest and love for this lifestyle.
The materials asked for in this grant will help my students in several ways.
The Petri dishes will give my students the opportunity to swab door handles, tongues, drinking fountains, and much more to see the bacteria we interact with day-to-day (without even realizing it!).
The dissecting tools will allow them to compare the similarities and differences between organs and organ systems for mammals, insects, fish, plants, and more.
The slides will allow them to experience the amazing process of cell replication at a level they can finally see.
So many times I have heard students (and adults) say, "I'm just not good at science." What they mean is that they're not good at memorizing vocabulary words and reciting them back for tests.
I want my students to actually DO science, thus proving to themselves that they ARE good at science, and science is a whole lot of fun! These supplies will help me realize that dream.
