Since 2007, our elementary students have enjoyed the hands-on benefits of science lab instruction, thanks in part to an annual $297,000 MBEF grant. Science specialists, like Pennekamp Elementary School’s Susan Holton, cross-collaborate and prepare grade-appropriate labs, teaching concepts from electromagnets to seed dispersal to energy sources. Holton’s lab serves as home to many critters including a bearded dragon, a tarantula, a gecko, a mouse, hermit crabs, stick bugs and a guinea pig named “Cookie”. Not to be outdone, Meadows parents praise their specialist, Joanne Michaels, for her enthusiasm and innate ability to stir student curiosity and wonder through hands-on experiments.
