DEXTER - Dexter Regional High School has recently received a Science and Math Improvement Grant from the Toshiba America Foundation in New York City in the amount of $12,700.00 for a project titled - "Wet Lab Research and Design." The project was created by Ms. Regina Herrick, the classroom teacher.
The grant money will enable 11th grade chemistry students to select a research project that they will focus on for the spring semester. Students will be given the opportunity to choose one of the following three topics: an examination of Lobster Shell Disease, a water toxicology investigation or a fuel cell research component. Each topic will allow students to explore various aspects of chemistry through independent inquiry and learn how science is used specifically within their own community.
