EDN Gives Science Supplies to DC Schools

Yesterday, Earth Day Network and Ward’s Science donated twelve boxes of science laboratory supplies, valued at $1,200, to DC Public Schools. This donation will help support Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education in two resource-limited schools.

The donation included a range of items, including centrifuge tubes, goggles, a variety of graduated cylinders, transfer pipets and experiment/testing kits.

The recipients of the donation are Howard D. Woodson High School and Charles Hart Middle School. Both public schools are located in the traditionally under-served southeast area of Washington, D.C. In April, Earth Day Network hosted the Earth Month STEM Fair at Union Station, where Kayla Rosemond, a student at Charles Hart Middle School, took home first prize in the Junior Division (6th- 8th grade) for her project “Oil Hide ‘N’ Seek.” We know that this donation will continue to support the work and education of students like Kayla.

Earth Day Network’s Education Program is committed to the advancement of STEM education in the U.S. and around the world; our future leaders must be equipped with the skills and knowledge to design solutions for present and future environmental challenges. We extend our thanks to Ward’s Science for helping to make this donation possible, and for their continued support of STEM education.
