The Project

Project Title Southwest York Homeschoolers
Insects To Study < LEFT BLANK >
Project Description I am a professional chemist partnering with the Southwest York Homeschoolers to provide science teaching support. I try to help out the kids with presentations, demonstrations, etc. I would like to give the students some firsthand experience with real world microscopy using biological specimens, most probably an insect. This will give me a chance to introduce entomology and microscopy. Would it be possible to get a 2 hour block for the kids? Thank you for doing what you do! This is a fantastic way to promote science! :)
