My Project

We are developing a Life Science Laboratory for all things biology. Students will have opportunities to collaborate while exploring natural phenomena, and using their innate inquisitiveness to gain science knowledge. Think microscopes, incubators, aquariums, and more!

I am requesting shelving and storage containers to organize our science equipment.

Help to engage our students in memorable learning experiences! Students are curious about the world around them and are always eager for hands on learning.

This shelving and the storage boxes will allow us to organize equipment in our Life Science Lab in such a way that the lab is fully functional and facilitates student learning!

Grades 6-8
Nearly all students from low‑income households
