What is the Inquiries in Science® Mini-Grant Program?
It’s your opportunity to see just how much Carolina Biological Supply Company’s
Inquiries in Science® kits can improve your students’ understanding of complex scientific subjects.
Each kit features lab activities designed to actively engage high school students in learning difficult science concepts. The approach is guided inquiry. The results are impressive! Learn more at www.carolina.com/inquiries. Through this mini-grant program, 50 high school science teachers will be selected from applications to receive a mini-grant: an Inquiries in Science® kit valued at approximately $150. Each teacher will be able to choose a kit from the Biology Series or Chemistry Series mini-grant award list.
How will recipients be chosen?
A team of Carolina staff and our science education consultants will serve as the selection committee. Winners will be chosen based on need, experience, and ideas for integrating the kit into curriculum and project goals.
Winners will be notified via mail by June15, 2010, and kits will be shipped by September
