SEBASTIAN – The Sebastian River High School, located at 9001 Shark Boulevard, received a STEM grant from the Toshiba American Foundation, school officials said.
The grant, totaling $1,365.60, is an effort to support experiments with biochemistry.
It will ultimately support Dawn Arnett’s 1B Chemistry II Course.
Chemistry students are investigating biochemistry as one of the four scientific options in the curriculum.
The project will provide hands-on experiments in biochemistry for Sebastian students using wet lab elements such as lipids and antacids at the high school.
“This grant will provide students the real-life experience that is critical in connecting theory to practice,” Principal Todd Racine said in a statement. “We are grateful for her motivation to bring STEM opportunities to her students through this Toshiba grant.”
