Adults try micropipetting and taste tests at Science Education at NNHS and Beyond on December 6

More than 25 parents/guardians joined the PTSO for a fun evening learning what Newton North students are doing in science class, hearing about the Science Department's need for new equipment to introduce teens to cutting-edge work in genetics, and trying out micropipettes and a taste test. Attendees were the first to hear about a matching challenge of up to $15,000 for this year's Educational Excellence fundraising campaign--focused on purchasing biotech equipment--that is being offered by a generous NNHS family.

Presenters were Principal Henry Turner, Science Department chair Heather Haines, biology teacher Shu-Yee Chen, and Educational Excellence co-chair Lori Knowles. Thank you to all presenters, to Melissa Kontaridis, Educational Excellence co-chair; and to Linda Hanusaik and Elizabeth Reilly, PTSO vice presidents of programming, for planning this valuable session.
