Drew visited a local middle school classroom

Drew visited our former Kenan Fellow Christine Sudzina Schut's classroom at Culbreth Middle School in Chapel Hill. Her internship in our lab in the past summer inspired her to spend the previous month of her 7th grade AVID (Advancement via individual determination) Science class studying the fruit fly by observing their life cycle and describing their anatomy and common phenotypic markers while practicing their microscope skills. Drew's visit gave students the opportunity to share their observations with him, listen to our research mission, and hear about the potential career paths in academia. Many thanks for doing this, both of you!
