CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Western Massachusetts high schools will share $2.5 million to buy new equipment for their life science classes.

That comes as welcome news for the students studying anatomy and physiology at Chicopee High School. They need new equipment and supplies for their life sciences program.

Their teacher Wendy Blanchard told 22News these taxpayer dollars are an investment in her students’ futures.

Blanchard said, “They’re going to be going on to various different health fields. It just gives them an up when they get into college. They’ll understand some of the things a little bit better and it’ll really help them.”

Other life science courses benefiting from Friday’s state grants included high school and middle school classes in biology and chemistry.
