Open House is next month!

Saturday, September 17th from 10 AM to 2 PM.

It was great to see many of you at the July 9th Open House. We gave away over $45,000 worth of supplies and cleaned up over 45 containers of extra stock. Our NSF fiscal year ended with the Depot giving away $641,825 worth of supplies! Thanks to all the donors, teachers and volunteers who made it possible.

See you in a few weeks!

Genentech (& friends) Give Back

We had 13 volunteers at our Genentech Give Back Day on June 15th. Genentech staff spent the day helping nonprofits in the community. We also had help from researchers from USF and SF State. We cleaned up over 45 containers of extra stock and reduced our Depot footprint over 50%. Thanks for all your hard work!

Join Us At The Exchange
The purpose of the Chemical Exchange Network is to facilitate the informal exchange of laboratory chemicals and information used in teaching biotechnology, biochemistry, chemistry, physics, and general science.

1) A teacher that needs some “Yeast Extract” would post a request to the Chemical Exchange Network Google Group.

2) Another teacher that has excess “Yeast Extract” could respond with a donation, or an offer of trade.

3) The teachers could meet at the Depot’s Open House, or elsewhere, to make the transaction.
