Between 2011 and 2014 a series of grants to the science department of RCHS included:
- Vernier Labquest Mini – Allows students to conduct scientific data collection in all science disciplines just as it is done in colleges and in the real scientific world.
- iPads for Physics and Calculus – Students are able to record labs and experiments, access sites like YouTube, Wolfram Alpha, and other instructional sites; view 82 teacher-created tutorial videos for problem-solving and AP exam review; and can use the free app “Video Physics,” as well as other excellent physics and calculus apps.
- Chemistry Lab Equipment – Funding improved the quality of laboratory experience for all chemistry students. With the equipment purchased with this funding, chemistry students are able to set up and perform acid base titration.
