    Classroom Spotlight
    This is where we will spotlight some of the amazing things happening in the classrooms at Menlo Park School. ThisClassroom Spotlight shines on:
     

    Dr. Makilzay, a biochemist for Merck, and mother of a student in Ms. Kowalsky’s 4th grade class came to introduce the class to the exciting world of biochemistry, by conducting an experiment to extract DNA from a vial of wheat germ. As the class extracted DNA out of wheat germ, students were fascinated and were heard saying, “This is so interesting!” One student was in awe as that the DNA he saw look much different than he expected. The student were so curious and one student wanted to know how the DNA in her body looked compared to this wheat germ DNA. This experiment opened up a whole new world of thinking for the students in Ms. Kowalsky's class and possibly a whole new career path!!
