We had two scientists from big UT visit us to teach the students about bacteria and DNA. It was really cool!!! Juan Pedro Maestre and colleagues came during STEAM class to lead the students in an experiment where they were about to discover new concepts relating to bacteria and DNA. The third grade students took samples and plated them to see what or if they would grow anything. The fifth graders extracted DNA from strawberries and split peas. They even got to take a sample home! It was super special. Their faces just lit up as they made new discoveries! We are so thankful that real scientists took time to come and teach our Little Longhorns!
