I am lucky enough to teach Accelerated Biology and AP Biology to a wonderful group of high school students. Unfortunately, it is not always easy to get equipment into their hands that will maximize their experience to fulfill their potential.
The students in my class are mature, responsible, motivated, and display an intrinsic excitement for learning that I want to be able to nourish.
I want to optimize their experience and help create the foundation to support their future success.
My students need to become more adept at using biotechnology to meet the NGSS learning standards. These Gel Electrophoresis supplies will allow them to run DNA samples to simulate forensic investigations and better understand the physical properties of DNA as well as separation techniques.
My goal is to make science come to life to promote college and career readiness while achieving the Next Generation Science Standards.
These specific gel boxes will allow more students to participate directly in the lab activity because a single box can run multiple gels. This increase of hands-on activity will also increase student engagement.
