On October 19th, a group of 12 Biology students and two faculty visited a local elementary school (McNichols Plaza) to give a program about the nervous system and their senses to the 4th graders. These fantastic hands-on activities get the elementary students excited about the real-life implications of what they learn in the classroom.
This event is part of the annual activities of SynAPSE (Synergistic Activity Program for Science Education). In the spring, the same students will take a field trip to the University for a more advanced set of activities introducing them to experimental design and data collection. Any University students interested in volunteering to help should contact Dr. Gomez or Dr. Son.
