Scientist in Residence Program • The best thing I liked is the landfill (Kelly, Gr. 3, Weir) • We could learn about biodiversity, different types of soil, liquid and gas, DNA, making bread, and butter (Jessica, Gr. 2, Sir Wilfred Laurier) • The experiments we did were very creative and interesting. I had a lot of fun! (Natalie, Gr. 4, Queen Mary) • The pond poke was so much FUN! (Faith, Gr. 2, Hastings) • Having a professional scientist guide your learning really gave me the chance to ask my most tickling questions to a day to day researcher! The field study was intriguingly educational, yet it gave us a sense of fun because this program never felt like regular school (Steven, Gr. 7, Tecumseh).
