Allow us to introduce ourselves…
Today your child began an exciting science program in their classroom offered by Science from Scientists. SfS is a Boston-based, non-profit organization that strives to improve science and technology attitudes and aptitudes. We send real scientists into the classroom during school every other week to teach exciting, fun, and curriculum-relevant science lessons. We will be visiting your child’s classroom every other week throughout the school year. We will bring engaging, informative, and stimulating hands-on lessons with us to supplement the school’s science curriculum.
As part of our introductions today, the students learned a little more about the two scientists who will be visiting the Lincoln school as part of this program, Dr Pam and Mrs Z. Dr Pam is an immunologist and Mrs Z is an electrical engineer. Since we are two very different types of scientists, we gave the students some insight into what types of jobs and research we have done. Ask your students if they can tell you what an immunologist studies. After our introductions, we covered some important safety guidelines and wrapped up the lesson with a puzzling activity. We are very excited to be at Lincoln and looking forward to our next visit!
