The APPLE Program
The APPLE (Advanced Placement Program for Learning Enhancement) program is a group of scientists and collegiate students, coordinated by Educational Outreach program of HudsonAlpha, who volunteer to bring the equipment, materials and resources needed to perform the Enzyme Catalysis and the Transformation labs to area high schools. While conducting labs, students gain an opportunity to interact with volunteers; in hopes of learning more about STEM related careers. Besides having an increased teacher/student ratio for the laboratory exercises, the students would be exposed to a number of different professional opportunities both in academia and industry. It is the goal of the program to have enough volunteers to work with the students in a 1:4 ratio. This program is free of charge to classrooms and teachers of AP Biology in the Madison County metro area. The program runs from August to April of each school year. For more information or to serve as a volunteer, please contact Ms. Dasi Price at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
