The Githage Mixed Day Secondary School had one dedicated science room, but it lacked the infrastructure to perform practical experiments. This project funded a 12’ x 24’ extension to the existing classroom that permitted construction of a proper science lab. Then, TGUP’s Science Lab in a Box ™ was installed. This permits world-class laboratory work in Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. 

TGUP thanks the Rotary Club of Palo Alto, which paid for the physical build-out of the lab, and the Rotary Club of Los Altos, which paid for the Science Lab in a Box ™. The world is a better place because of you and your members. 

SLaB Description – click below to read

The first step to qualify for a SLaB is for the school to complete an Application.

After the SLaB Application has been approved by TGUP, the school’s science department completes a Quotable Bill of Materials. This lists their chosen equipment and supplies and is sent to at least two science vendors for quotes.
