Know Atoms Science Lessons in Grade 4

The 4th graders are studying DNA.  In the pictures above they are creating DNA models.  Know Atoms supplies the materials and lesson plans generously funded through a GE grant.   In addition to financial support of young students in our community, the GE also sends volunteer engineers and scientists to work with students  execute the more complicated science experiments.  In the photo above GE volunteer Francesco Pancheri help students construct DNA models.   A great big thank you to the teachers.  While these lessons are impressive and effective they require a great deal of extra preparation.  Naturally the teachers at Lynn Woods have embraced this challenge.
