Lab Equipment for My Biology Class

My students need latex gloves, beakers, aprons, and safety goggles.

Can you imagine not having basic lab supplies in your biology class? Can you imagine going through your biology course in high school without ever doing a lab? That is the reality for my tenth grade students every year. Our school just does not have the money to buy basic supplies for our classrooms!

Our school has no money for supplies and extra resources. My students face extreme daily challenges from gang violence to teenage pregnancies. They have little to no support systems at home. Still, the students in my biology class want to do well and they want to go to four year colleges when they graduate. They want to succeed. They want to help bring themselves and their entire family out of poverty. They have a strength and determination that is admirable and contagious. And I want to help them in every way possible to achieve their goals.

Our school needs basic supplies like gloves, goggles, and aprons for safety and simple beakers for lab experiments. Your donation will enable me and my students to perform lab experiments in class and to have fun while learning. Right now, I do not have any safety equipment in class and therefore my students can't take part in the experiment. You will benefit all my students and help them enjoy the love of learning biology!

You will make it possible for my science class to be a REAL laboratory class with weekly lab experiments. You will empower my students to do well in this class by showing them that their education is important. You will help my students find a love for learning biology -- this love will hopefully transfer into their other classes too! You will be helping my students reach their potential in class and be inspired to continue learning all throughout high school!
