The Methacton Education Foundation is thrilled to annonunce the commitment of $220,000 for two transformative STEM Innovation Labs at Methacton High School. Ambler Savings Bank and J.P. Mascaro & Sons generously donated the first 65,000 towards the programs.
These experimental labs will supplement Methacton High School’s core science curriculum and allow for advanced application of the content in ways not typically provided to high school students. The Foundation will raise the funds through partnerships with corporate and community partners who share a mission to inspire innovative education, starting with Ambler Savings Bank and J.P. Mascaro & Sons.
The new Hydroponic Farm Lab will differentiate Methacton’s Environmental Science and Biology programs with a vertical hydroponic farm inside an insulated, custom-built shipping container. Methacton will be the first school in Pennsylvania with this state of the art greenery farming system.
The new Forensics and Biochemistry Lab will launch Methacton CSI and will offer students a “Who Done It” case to solve using forensic tools and methods such as: DNA Electrophoresis, Fingerprint & Handwriting analysis, Fiber & Hair analysis, Trace & Residue Analysis, and a FTIR Spectrometer to analyze counterfeit printing.
Thanks to our teachers, administration, donors, and supporters for making these transformative programs possible in Methacton!
