The "Great Giveaway”- Equipment & Supplies for Teachers

SCBC collects equipment and consumable supplies from local industry to be repurposed for use by regional community colleges and high schools.

Prompt pick-up is arranged by calling the SCBC Director Dr. Sandra Slivka at
619-388-7490 or e-mail sslivka@sdccd.edu. Donors are provided with a receipt and a letter releasing liability. The SCBC collects and stores materials and makes an effort to ‘match’ school needs with the donations. “Prized” or one-of-a -kind equipment is raffled. Other items are available on a first-come-first served basis. The “Great Giveaway” events are held several times a year.  Send us an e-mail to be placed on the invitation list.

   

FOR EDUCATORS

The Amgen Foundation provides funding for high school outreach that allows teachers to implement the Amgen Biotech Experience curriculum in their classrooms. With the help of the foundation we are able to provide an outreach coordinator, loaner equipment and FREE supplies for teaching biology.
