Lab of Dreams

Help me give my students finish their project AND make the lab of their dreams.

My Students

My students come from a low SES region in rural WV, but despite the location, we are home to the first Project Lead the Way Biomedical Science program in the state of West Virginia. This class requires a number of consumable items as well as full sets of specialized laboratory equipment to make our lab complete. These students are doing college-level work in high school and need the appropriate equipment.

Help us expand our program and give these students the proper tools they need to soar.

My Project

These resources will allow us to do two things. First, some of these products will allow us to finish the project that we started and entered into the Samsung contest. This will allow us to take the project to an even higher level than originally planned. Part of these items will be used for an entrepreneurial venture that has stemmed from our class and may lead to a simple but effective product that protects firefighters from one common type of cancer.

The second goal is to truly make our lab a lab of dreams.

These resources (such as the Flip 2) will make our lab a place students never want to leave.
