"Thanks to the generous support of NEB, our students are able to move beyond the realm of "kit-based" science education. They are able to pose questions that are of genuine interest to them, then design and implement experiments that address these questions. For example, one of our students is conducting an epigenetics study utilizing qRT-PCR. She is evaluating telomere position effect and gene silencing in Neurospora crassa by examining expression levels of a transgene inserted at varying distances from the telomere. The majority of reagents used in her experiments were provided by NEB.
"In the 21st century, much of biology is viewed through a molecular lens. Donations given by NEB have allowed teachers to keep pace with modern research, providing our students a robust, authentic science experience.
"Thank you very much!"
Joseph P. Whalen, Bioscience Instructor
"Each year, institutions like ours are faced with shrinking budgets. As an instructor I am very thankful for your program because it allows me to design authentic molecular biology based experiments for my students. Much of biology is now viewed through a molecular lens but the reagent costs are often prohibitive for smaller institutions like ours. Thank you for your continual support. It gives my students the chance to perform several basic molecular biology techniques and to begin viewing biological problems from their own set of molecular lenses."

"I want to acknowledge and thank you for the supplies of plasmids and restriction enzymes that you generously donated to the Environmental Lab of the Center for Advanced Research and Technology [CART]. Our Biomedical Engineering Lab students will get a lot of use out of these supplies as they work on their annual showcase projects and presentations.
"Excellent education is a direct reflection of the nation it serves and support from valuable members of our community, even across the country, inspires us to strive even further to reach out to the young people of this community and meet their educational needs.
"We thank you for your continued support of CART."

"All our SEP teachers sign photo release forms with us when they join SEP and everyone in the photo joined in voluntarily, so I think you are covered on the permission. We had fun doing it, too. We wanted to let you know how important and appreciated the product donation is for what we do. Around 15,000 students end up using those items in conjunction with our loaned kits each year."

"Each year MdBioLab, a mobile bioscience laboratory, continues to advance its mission of providing unique lab experiences to the students and teachers of Maryland. Through our mobile laboratory program, we have seen many young people become excited about science. With the help of donations from supporters such as you we will continue to see improvements in the quality of STEM education in Maryland."

I just wanted to say thank you for all of the ABE reagents you have donated for our teachers to use over the years…you can see your donations "in the wild" at a teacher training.
