This proposal is for the benefit of my eighth-grade science students at the Renaissance Military & Leadership Academy (I.S. 286) in Harlem. Our school has been significantly improving its performance over the last few years, but we still lack many of the laboratory resources necessary to help our students become engaged in, and internalize, our science curriculum. One of the most important and exciting introductory laboratory skills is the use of microscopes. We have eight microscopes but none of the accessories to teach using the microscopes in depth. I am hoping to create a large kit for the microscopes that will be well cared for and can be used again each year. The microscope kit would be used by approximately 150 eighth-grade students. It would consist of a range of prepared slides, as well the necessary tools to make our own slides (blank slides, cover slips, dye, plastic forceps, and medicine droppers) and to take care of the microscopes. Additionally, the students must take a practical lab section in the eighth-grade science test, which they can only prepare for using the correct equipment. This microscope kit would allow them to become very comfortable with using microscopes in particular, and with lab practices and data analysis in general. It would thus allow the students of RMLA to take a significant step in their scientific abilities.
