North Street School Third Graders Visit NYSAES



This week, students from North Street Elementary School visited NYSAES to meet scientists, tour labs and greenhouses, and learn to use microscopes. Their visit is part of a hands-on program developed by Christine Smart (Plant Pathology and Plant-Microbe Biology) and Stephen Reiners (Horticulture) to teach elementary school students about plant science. In early May, Smart and Reiners gave the Geneva City School District’s third-graders a crash course in seed biology and helped the students sow a garden’s worth of vegetable and flower seeds. The seedlings Reiners is showing the students in the photo above will be planted soon in the school’s garden, which is used as a living laboratory for district’s summer science program.
