Miami scientists welcome Talawanda elementary students for Science Week

scienceweek-best-libraryMiami scientists welcomed hundreds of elementary students from Talawanda’s Bogan, Kramer and Marshall schools during the 12th annual Science Week May 21-23.

Like spring perennials, a new crop of first- through fourth-graders appear each year in the science quad the week following commencement.

Miami faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students provided hands-on learning experiences in physics, chemistry, biology, psychology, geology, geography and engineering. The BEST library and Hefner Museum of Natural History also hosted students.
