Description:

The purpose of this grant is to provide funding to the Alamance Burlington School System (ABSS) to assist with the transformation of four laboratory classrooms at Graham High School (GHS) to create industry standard science facilities. Alamance County students will have the opportunity to take science classes through a partnership with Alamance Community College (ACC). Students will accelerate through the biotechnology school-to-work pipeline beginning at Graham Middle School’s Innovation Lab, continuing to GHS with a Biotechnology Certificate and advancing to a full AAS in Biotechnology or other clinical lab field. The STEM wing will be open for the 2017-2018 school year and available to serve up to 900 high school students annually. Golden LEAF funds will be used for room remodeling, furniture, equipment/materials and technology.
