Journey through the Body

My students need 3 activity kits to bring human physiology out of the textbook and into their hands.

I am a Science teacher in a college Prep high school within a very large, very urban, public school district. As with most urban public school districts, budgets are tight, resources are stretched, but expectations are high. As we prepare for the upcoming school year, I am reaching out to individuals and business that might be able to provide resources so our students (90% minority, 75% low income) can reach and surpass the expected benchmarks. Thanks to the generosity of donors, I was able to develop a hands-on dissection course in Anatomy and Physiology this past school year. In this course, students explored the awesome and complex structures that allow organisms to survive and maintain function in our sometimes hostile environment. Many of my students have aspirations to continue into health related careers that are grossly under-represented by minorities and this course will provide them with an exceptional foundation as they move into their post-secondary education. This year, my goal is to make this course as student-oriented as possible with full examination of a variety of anatomical specimens and a full exploration of physiological function. In order to accomplish this goal, my students are currently in need of physiology kits and dissection specimens. Through their investigation, I hope to instill excitement for the learning process and appreciation for the human body. Any supplies that you are able to donate will be used by the 30 students already enrolled in the course and the hundreds of students who will take the course in the future. It is my hope that successful completion of this course will inspire my students to continue on the health careers path that they have selected. Thank you for your consideration.
