Skype 'n Tell
Yesterday, I was fortunate to be able to witness a video conference at Handley Elementary. Mrs. Nuñez, a 5th grade teacher, coordinated an e-visit with Dr. Ana Sanchez, a microbiologist at Brock University in Canada. Dr. Sanchez chatted with the students about her research with infectious diseases and how she uses the scientific method of discovery every day!
The students were hooked, engaged, and asked great questions. I was so impressed, I just had to share! Major kudos to Mrs. Nuñez and her students for thinking outside the box! The kids will definitely remember this exciting day in 5th grade!
