The NPEF has awarded several grants over the last four years for the purchase of ProScopes (digital microscopes) and Vernier Probes that help increase the technological skills of the students, bring a more modern and realistic setting to the classroom laboratory, increase the students’ observational, analytical, and drawing skills, and raise the students’ critical thinking […]
Over the past few years, the science department through a variety of NPEF grants has successfully incorporated the use of a variety of probes, CBL’s (computer based labs), ProScopes, multimedia projectors and video capture into the course curriculum. This grant provides for two SMART Boards to improve the conceptual understanding of the student and increase […]
The Biology Department will expand on the success of probes and ProScopes that were purchased with NPEF grants over the past three years. This grant is for additional ProScopes, or digital microscopes. The digital images can be displayed on a computer monitor or be projected onto a screen. These digital microscopes provide immediate images that […]
The Biology Department will expand on the success of probes that were purchased with NPEF grants over the past two years, this year adding digital microscopes, called ProScopes, that provide digital images that can be displayed on a computer monitor or projected onto a screen. These digital microscopes create immediate images that can be captured, […]
This grant also enhances an initial grant awarded last year by providing more calculator-based labs and probes so that all high school science students can quickly measure and analyze real-time biological data while working in small groups in their classrooms or in the field.
