Honors Biology Request for a Paperback Book

My students: I believe in practical application of Biology and I try very hard to relate every day needs as to why the students need Biology. I always hear, “I am going to be this….I don’t need Biology”. I want to bring it front and center in their lives. Read more at Donors Choose.

My students need 65 books of “The Hot Zone” to improve their literacy and of the biological world around them. Can you help by donating? Please visit Donors Choose and donate a book today.
