We are so thankful to our generous donors John & Diane Blindbury who so kindly funded Science grants at Newbury Park High School! We were able to honor 4 teachers for their fabulous ideas and provide funding for their projects!
NPHS Science teachers Jennifer Lockwood and Lorena Caulfield, pictured below with donor Diane Blindbury (center) and Principal Athol Wong (R) will use grant money to purchase blood pressure monitoring equipment. Stethescopes and aneroid sphygomomanometers will be used in labs and classroom activities studying the cardiovascular system. The equipment will benefit students in multiple classes including Sports Medicine, Anatomy and IB Biology.
Anatomy and Physiology teacher Danielle Barra received a grant to purchase skeletal system models needed for her classes.
Ms. Barra wrote: “Students in anatomy and physiology learn about all the major body systems throughout the course to gain an understanding of how the human body works. Many students in this class have a desire to pursue a degree and career in a medical related field and it is my goal to prepare them for studying anatomy and physiology at the college level.”
Science teacher Brianna Harris will use grant money to purchase a class set of novels for a long term project that will connect the Science and English curriculums.
Ms. Harris wrote: “This is a novel based on biological sciences where students will be able to connect the content learned in class to the fictional story.”
