Cub Run Students Put Science To Practice
Students from the local Cub Run Elementary School visited JMU for an interactive microscope lab to learn about cell biology. They shared compound microscopes from JMU’s biology department and identified the cellular features using Smartboards. Kerry Cresawn, assistant professor of biology, arranged for about 80 students to visit her classroom. Cresawn has visited Valley elementary schools before, and Tuesday was the first time students went to the university. Using a $7,572 grant from the Merck Foundation, Cresawn has made about 60 school visits since August to teach “ foundational science” at the elementary level.
