Six Lincoln Academy students were among a group of 10 high schoolers that spent Martin Luther King Day working alongside Colby Professor Thom Klepach’s Anatomy & Physiology January-term students. The students got acquainted through an interactive lab specimen tour and dissection of a pig heart. After a shared lunch, teams brainstormed “SMART” (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Tangible) ideas: testable questions that could serve as the focus of a science fair project.
This partnership was made possible by the STEM Guides Project, which is now active in Lincoln County. If you’re a high school student looking for activities to do in science, engineering, technology or math, contact CLC STEM Guide Lynn Farrin firstname.lastname@example.org, 207 592 8927 and stay connected by “liking” us (The STEM Guides Project: CLC Hub) on Facebook.
