Animal Science Specialist Crystal Ahrens and Teacher-Trainer Emily H. Hurst hosted the Louisiana 4-H Embryology Pilot Teacher Training on LSU’s campus! This high-quality, unique training was attended by teachers across all regions of Louisiana and included student-led, inquiry-based methods.
As a bonus, the teachers were all sent home with full embryology supply kits (incubators and teaching supplies). They may start utilizing them in their classrooms right away! One of our own teachers, Mrs. Mancil, applied and was accepted to participate in this program. I think her third graders are going to have a ball!
The sessions were held on July 9-10that LSU in Baton Rouge.
