About the event
Spark your students’ curiosity in an hour or less! Have them ask questions, experiment, and find solutions in a 60-minute lab experience that is fully aligned with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). See how inquiry-based learning methods can ignite your students’ interest and engagement.
All living things are composed of cells. Students will investigate plant cells and cell structure by extracting and preparing their own samples for microscope viewing. Through observation, and by sketching and recording their findings, they’ll gain deeper appreciation for this building block of life. They’ll expand upon on this experience by comparing and contrasting between their plant slides and prepared animal cell slides (human cheek cells).
Student Package: Includes engaging pre and post educational field trip activities, trip organization and student entry.
