Consumables for the Synergistic Lab
The PK faculty and staff are very proud and excited about our new Synergistic Lab. The lab provides hands-on science and math activities for ALL 7th & 8th grade students. There are fifteen different modules covering an array of topics ranging from engineering towers to solving environmental issues to cooking hot dogs using solar energy. The opportunities for explorations and learning are endless.
The lab requires several consumable items to run efficiently. If anyone would like to donate any of the following items for the lab, it would be GREATLY appreciated: (extra credit)
- Straws (not flexible)
- notebook paper
- baby food carrots
- packets of ketchup & mustard
- ziplock sandwich and snack bags
- vinyl or latex gloves
*We are also in need of a small microwave and a mini fridge.*
