TWO HIGH SCHOOL PHYSICS & CHEMISTRY EXAMPLES:
1) Gilbert High School (Gilbert) $4,935: Students will have access to more experimental and lab-based chemistry, engage interactively in chemistry and in lab groups, be prepared for the use of technology required for college-level science classes, enjoy learning science and increase the likelihood of pursuing a STEM field at the post-secondary education level. Students will use Lab Quest 2 hand-held devices to set up experiments to collect and analyze data.
2) Peoria High School (Peoria) $5,000: There has been no certified physics teacher at Peoria High School. This year, the program was resurrected and offered two physics sections, and next year there will be physics at all levels. Equipment is needed to be able to serve students and prepare them for the future. Between this grant and the matching school funds, the seven sections of physics classes will have all the equipment needed.
Last spring, SRP Learning Grants were given to 33 schools.
