6 × $650 for 1 month of rent = $3,900 6 × $150 for utilities = $900 $100 for extra disposables $200 for advertising Total = $5,100
In order to reach our goal we require the necessary equipment, disposables and chemicals for our work. We also need to acquire level 1 lab certification and meet with a lab facilities expert in order to ensure the safety of the lab. Thankfully, we have already received donations of equipment and disposables and a professional lab facilities expert has offered a donation of her time to help us achieve safety standards. What we require at this time is the financial assistance of the community to help us secure the lab space, purchase the necessary chemicals and produce marketing materials.
Stretch Goal Budget:
Basic Molecular Biology: DNA isolation, PCR, Gel electrophoresisMaterials cost - $1048
Hands on Neurophysiology: Basic Brain Dissection (with Resin Casting)Materials cost - $222
Basic Molecular Biology: Focus on learning molecular biology through a hands-on class teaching DNA isolation, PCR and Gel electropheresis. No experience necessary.
Hands on Neurophysiology: Identify different areas in the brain while performing a basic brain dissection. Also, take home a keepsake; after the dissection we'll be casting slices of the brain in clear resin.
