Inquiry Leads to More Inquiry
My students need petri dishes and lab materials. They enjoyed working with bacteria and want to do more. We are also getting ready for another lab where we will test productivity
I have very inquisitive students who want to investigate their world using materials that are used in college and in the labs. These materials will enable the students to conduct more labs.
My students are diverse in both socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds but they share the desire to learn and experience all that they can before going off to college.
We are a large high school servicing many students who are on free or reduced lunch and have a large percentage of minority. My AP Biology class reflects that diversity. Many want to pursue a career in medicine and need to understand the newest technologies. The girls outnumber the boys and they are taking this challenging course to better prepare them for college and their future careers.
Students will learn how to culture bacteria from pouring plates and exposing the plates to the potential sources of bacteria. In a previous lab they only got to use some prepared samples and want to do more. We will be able to expose these plates to different conditions to see the impact of controlling bacterial growth. With the other materials we will be able to see how productivity differs in different amounts of light and the impact that has on the ecosystem.
These donations will enable the students to experience activities that they might perform in college or future careers.
They will also support the learning from the book. Many students need this hands- on experience.
