My students need a class refrigerator to house all of my biology products. This includes many dissections that we will be pursuing this year. I also have petri dishes that need to be housed and stored.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our student population is very driven and motivated by STEM and hands-on application.
The majority of our student population primarily come from a low income driven demographic and ESL however, their ability and desire to learn shows every day!
These are incredible students who deserve every opportunity to learn and engage in curriculum that will spark their future in science and STEM.
The thing I love most about my students is their perseverance. It's often times that I remind them that the greatest things in the world have happened because of failures. They take that and run with it. Knowing that my classroom is a safe environment to fail and overcome and it is the knowledge we get from that that truly makes us better and want to try again.
I recently purchased with some grant money multiple dissections to use next year during our genetics, natural selection, and adaptations unit. This also includes some DNA projects that must be stored at cooler temperatures. The problem, the refrigerator I was going to use is now gone. So I have all of this amazing learning tools and no where to store it!
My students are incredibly driven by hands-on opportunities which relate to STEM education and I would hate for them to miss out on capturing the love of science just because I cannot properly store my items.
I do not need need anything special but this is the most inexpensive and offers the most space to service approximately 180 students in the 8th grade at our school.
