At Weathersfield, kindergarten teachers Concie Bringas, Lynn Quick, & Bill McGovern shared grant money to bring Reading Awakens Young Scientists (RAYS) to their students.
The teachers report:
“RAYS [is] a program to introduce students to science and technology while reading children’s stories and providing hands on content standard science activities. The students were introduced to the scientific method, life cycle of mealworms, the five senses, and the use of scientific tools. This grant was very helpful because it provided us the opportunity to do hands on science and many of the children would possibly not have had the funds to afford this program.”
