The middle and high school science departments will receive an abundance of new laboratory research equipment in the coming weeks. This brand new equipment will greatly enhance the classroom experience, preparing students for the college level and beyond.
Labs will be furnished with college-level basics like heated stir plates, scientific scales, refrigerated storage, and biohazard safety equipment. The upper level high school courses will also be working with advanced equipment such as DNA gel electrophoresis apparatus', carbon dioxide gas probes, and laboratory grade glassware.
"The opportunities that equipment like this provide are something most students typically don't experience until college," said AP Bio Professor Blake Shealy. "I am so happy that FSA supports our desire as teachers to engage our students in a way that is unlike anywhere else!"
Equipment is expected to arrive within the next week or so.
