Sheridan Road School is a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) magnet school in the Lansing School District. Because of its close proximity to Emergent’s Lansing campus, and its STEM designation, it has become a favorite among Emergent volunteers.
In the spring of this year, several Emergent employees volunteered to help a 6th grade class with a sheep brain dissection. Though Emergent employees have backgrounds in various types of science, the volunteers guided the students through the dissection.
"Engaging with the students during the sheep brain dissection was my favorite eGIVE activity thus far because I was able to interact with students doing something we both really enjoyed. I have a biology background, and the girls were surprised to see a woman who isn't grossed out by science!" – Sara Miller
